Traffic portal extended to Wellington and Melbourne

2510306_Global_TOP10_CongestionNavigation services provider TomTom is extending its live traffic and travel information portal, TomTom City, to 50 new cities including Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city and Melbourne in Victoria, Australia.

TomTom City is accessible from any internet-enabled computer, tablet or smartphone and provides free content showing live traffic status and incidents and other driver-based information in cities.

The key features of TomTom City include real-time traffic status, delay hotspots, and a road event reporter.

The TomTom City portal showcases the extensive range of traffic information available on a city by city basis and provides a platform to connect traffic authorities, businesses, and citizens to manage sustainable and efficient mobility together.

Located at, it launched in April this year with 25 cities.

The addition of another 25 cities means that more than 30 million additional people can now benefit from the service from Johannesburg to Oslo to Melbourne, and to Wellington.

“Using data from over 450 million devices globally we are creating services that will help cities and connected cars work together to optimise the road network for everyone,” says TomTom head of traffic Ralf-Peter Schäfer.

“As the number of connected vehicles on the road increases over the coming years with the emergence of semi- and highly-automated driving, TomTom City, will offer new ways to manage city mobility,” says Schäfer.

“Drivers and professionals involved in traffic management can make smarter decisions to avoid delays on the road and reduce congestion for everyone,” he says.
