Caltrans’ QuickMap App Now Available for All Smart Phones

 For the first time, users of the iOS platform can now download the free QuickMap app for iPhone® and iPad®. In this Caltrans News Flash, you’ll see how easy the app is to get and how convenient it is to use.

“We want to make travel as safe and easy as possible for California motorists. The QuickMap app gives critical information on highway conditions, so drivers can make smart decisions before they travel," said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

The QuickMap app displays the user’s location on a map along with real-time information including; traffic speed, road closures, California Highway Patrol incidents, chain controls, fire locations, electronic highway sign messages, and live traffic cameras. QuickMap was launched online in 2011, with an Android app released in August of last year.  As a reminder, please do not use Quickmap while driving.
