511: Traffic, Transit & Commute Information

511

Launched in February 2007, 511 is a free phone and web service that consolidates the region's transportation information into a one-stop resource. Merging transportation and technology, 511 puts a wealth of free, travel-related information at your fingertips - 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can access the service by dialing 511 from any phone or by visiting 511sd.com.

Through 511, you can get:

  • traffic information (incidents with delay information and driving times – all based on real-time traffic monitoring)
  • traffic cameras
  • transit route and fare information
  • carpool and vanpool information
  • bicycle maps and commuting information
  • FasTrak toll information
  • roadside assistance (if your car breaks down on the freeway, 511 connects you to a call center for assistance!)
