CHICAGO, April 15, 2014 – WGN-TV announces the launch of its first ever traffic app — “WGN TRAFFIC.” The WGN-TV Traffic App is now ready for FREE download through the Apple Store at tinyurl.com/WGNTrafficApp
For Chicago-area commuters, WGN-TV’s Traffic App will help get viewers where they’re going, even faster. They will be able to stay informed during rush hour with live Twitter updates from WGN Traffic Reporters Erin McElroy and Sarah Jindra, find the best route home using WGN’s interactive map, and get up-to-the-minute travel times. Additionally, the app will be populated by weather information from Tom Skilling and the WGN Weather Center and public transit information from CTA, Metra and Pace. Additionally, “WGN TRAFFIC” will also contain updates from the Illinois Department of Transportation, making the app a one-stop shop for all Chicago area commuters. An Android version of the “WGN TRAFFIC” app is still in development.
