511 Traffic Systems in Massachusetts

Understanding 511

Known as America's Traveler Information Telephone Number, 511 is the easy-to-remember (and easy-to-dial!) telephone number that travelers throughout much of America use to access traffic-related information.

511 helps travelers―even if they're just commuting to work―find the quickest and safest route possible. This cuts travel time, fuel costs, and vehicle emissions. A well-planned driving route can even help reduce the risk of an accident.
