Awards: ITS "Project of the Year" 2016
The 2016 ITS Midwest “Project of the Year” award for the Most Outstanding ITS Project had strong contenders this year including Ohio’s new OHGO Mobile App for their Traveler Information System, the Ohio DOT Statewide Towing and Recovery Incentive Payment (TRIP) Program for the quick clearance of large commercial vehicle incidents, the Travel Midwest/ Gateway Traveler Information System (GTIS) expansion that added coverage for all counties along the I-94 corridor from Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota to Detroit/Port Huron, Michigan and all interstates in Illinois, and finally the Chicago DOT’s Electronic Traffic Crash Reporting System that collects accurate and timely data on traffic crashes.
And the winner was … Ohio’s new OHGO Mobile App for their Traveler Information System!
OHGO Mobile App
The OHGO app has a few unique features that are beneficial above and beyond the website. By far the most impactful feature is personalized alerts. Users tell the app their normal commute times, routes, and days of week. By taking advantage of mobile technology OHGO was able to provide timely and useful information to motorists. The app also has a hands free mode to avoid distracted driving. Lastly a new predictive traffic feature allows motorists to plan ahead and get an idea of what traffic speeds will look like in the future.
