There are many ways in which you can waste your precious time, but the worst one of all has to be getting stuck in a traffic jam, and wasting your time! Having said that, it is a good thing that we are living in the age of technology where we have the option to download an app on our phones and beat the traffic. We have compiled a list of apps that can help you in beating the traffic and reach your destination before time.
Waze is one of the known apps that you can download, to beat the traffic. You can download it for free and get all the traffic-related information in real-time. If you are on the move, this app will definitely help you in remaining away from the troubled spots of your way. Apart from giving you traffic-related information, this app comes in handy even to share your live location with your desired point of contact.
The app is artificial intelligence-enabled; this essentially means that it picks on the routes you travel, the time you travel, and the destination you commute to. It works better, once the app knows you.
The live traffic information is built within the navigation function of Google Maps. This app will give you important information like ETAs, traffic conditions, and an alternate route that you can take to avoid getting jammed in traffic. Another good thing about this app is that it automatically reroutes you to the road will the least traffic (unless you cancel the reroute option within 5 seconds!).
Apart from providing you information about live traffic, this app will also work as a parking app. This app has specifically become popular because it has no in-built ads. Once you start using Inrix, it will keep a track of your driving habits and the routes to which you travel; it accordingly shows the ETA to the desired location. If you wish to know the right time to leave for any location, you must use this app. If you spot any kind of accident on the road, you can use this app to inform about the incidence. Giving information about closed lanes and closed roads is another feature of this app.
This is the bike taxi service provider that has recently come up with the traffic jam beating initiative; the initiative name is Go Ohh with Rapido.

MapQuest is quite a popular app when it comes to online navigation work. Now, it also tells you about the traffic condition in any particular area. The app is compatible with Windows Phone, Android, and iOS. The app will give you live traffic updates and will also provide another route to reach your destination. One great feature of this app is the live traffic camera. This feature helps you to see the exact number of cars that are before you, in the queue, on a road. With the help of the traffic bar option (a colored bar that is present on the top of the app page), you can know the exact flow of the traffic.
Uber carpool is another great option to beat the traffic. Carpooling works on a very basic concept that there would be lesser traffic on the road if people going to the same area decides to go together; this way the number of cars/bikes on road would be less. Uber carpool has successfully been able to work around this concept and make it a reality. Uber carpool uses Google maps to beat the traffic.
Any journey becomes a bit pleasant if you are accompanied by proper music along the journey (Yes! true for slow-moving traffic times). Spotify has successfully integrated with Google maps which ensures that you enjoy your ride along with good music. Because the app has integrated with google maps, it also tells you about traffic jams on a given road and you have the choice to take a road with lesser traffic. This app has actually changed the way people drive because this app has been able to bring music and navigation on a single platform.
