Dear News Media Partner:
Holiday season is always a special time of the year. Let Florida 511 (FL511) navigate your travels during this busy time of celebrations!
In recognition of the season, the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) Florida 511 Advanced Traveler Information system (ATIS) is reaching out to travelers with the Holiday Travels Toolkit. This toolkit provides information to help travelers stay in the know with traffic conditions, the best routes, and much more to help arrive to their destinations.
FL511 provides information about current road and travel conditions in Florida, so drivers can make choices about their travel plans. Its motto is “know before you go.” The service includes a website in English and Spanish, mobile apps, Twitter messages, text alerts, and Facebook and Instagram pages. The service also provides real-time camera views on major Florida roads, so users can see live road conditions throughout the state. The goal is to increase driving safety and reduce travel time and stress.
Please feel free to use this information and share these materials with your network and on your communications platforms.
We also invite you to subscribe to one or more of our social media accounts, including 13 Twitter accounts:
