Google Map shows traffic alert during route planning in Hong Kong
My new workplace is in Tung Chung and I take bus and MTR. I was thinking whether driving would be a good option during the ride this morning. I opened Google Map on iOS, tapped on destination and checked which route is better. To my surprise, one of the route shows traffic alert!
This feature only exists in Apple Map exclusively in some city such as New York City, and I never thought it would have in Hong Kong. I switched over starting point and destination.
I am pretty sure the traffic incident reports is in real-time! Hooray!
The traffic incident reports source may come from Hong Kong government, http://www.gov.hk/en/theme/psi/datasets/specialtrafficnews.htm
