Project: A step-by-step "How-to" for using PDA Suite to Create Holiday Travel Advisories
Timeframe: Labor Day Weekend 2016 (Thursday to Monday)
Lead Agency: Baltimore Metropolitan Council
Supporting Agency: Maryland Transportation Authority (MdTA) and State Highway Administration (SHA) and AAA Mid Atlantic
VPP Suite Tools Used: Congestion Scan, Trend Map
Description: BMC developed this guide to share with PDA Suite users, with the steps to develop a Holiday Travel Advisory post on an agency's web site. The advisory included visuals from Congestion Scan and Trend Map to give travelers added insight for avoiding the worst times for traffic and making their trip less stressful.
Highlights: Social media promotion (Facebook, Twitter) were very helpful, as was coverage by the local media.
