Project: Providing Thanksgiving travel advisories to Marylanders in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area
Lead Agency: Baltimore Metropolitan Council
Supporting Agency: Maryland Transportation Authority
PDA Suite Tools Used: Trend Map, Congestion Scan, Bottleneck Ranking, Performance Charts
Description: The Baltimore Metropolitan Council used several of the Probe Data Analytic Suite's apps to develop travel time recommendations for Thanksgiving 2016 holiday travel, by looking at previous Thanksgiving travel conditions, with particular focus on major travel corridors in the Baltimore Metropolitan Region, such as I-95 and I-695. These recommendations were then posted on BMC's website as an advisory for Marylanders to better plan their holiday travel.
Highlights: This effort generated much interest and was covered by the Baltimore Sun - see the video here:
