Inrix Dust Network Provides Broadest Nationwide Market Coverage
KIRKLAND, WA xxx8211; July 5, 2006 xxx8211; Inrix announced today it is delivering accurate, real-time speed and flow information for 36 metropolitan markets, making the company the broadest nationwide coverage provider of real-time flow information. Leveraging the real-time vehicle GPS probe data from the xxx8216;Inrix Dust Network,' the company launched six new metropolitan markets today including Dallas, Hartford, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, and Orlando.
Inrix is uniquely delivering speed information now for all six markets as these metropolitan areas today have limited or no traditional sensor infrastructure. Combined with twelve markets launched last quarter xxx8211; including Austin, Boston, Columbus, Grand Rapids, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, New York, Philadelphia, Providence, Richmond-Petersburg, San Antonio, Tampa and West Palm Beach-Boca Raton -- and previous market data aggregated from road sensor networks, Inrix now provides the broadest market coverage of any provider in the United States.
"Today's announcement of real-time flow coverage for six new markets further positions Inrix as the only company with a scaleable solution to deliver useful and relevant traffic flow information nationwide," said Inrix President and CEO Bryan Mistele. "We are ahead of schedule for the Inrix Dust Network to provide real-time flow information for over 50 markets by the end of the year, representing more than 35,000 miles of road coverage xxx8211; more than seven times the coverage that is available today through road sensor networks."
Inrix is the first nationwide traffic service to go beyond the limitations of road sensors and provide accurate real-time and predictive traffic speed and flow information for major freeways, highways, arterials and side streets in every major metropolitan area.
Inrix currently provides businesses and regional departments of transportation (DOTs) agencies with real-time traffic incident information for 138 metropolitan markets and with this announcement now provides real-time traffic speed and flow information for 36 markets across the country, making Inrix the clear leader in traffic flow coverage.
