In preparation for his drive to HopHacks on Friday, Liam looked up the travel time in the morning, which said 30 minutes. That evening, as he was getting ready to leave, the estimate became an hour and fifteen minutes. Why was there such a drastic change and why couldn't the application predict the evening travel time?

Trip estimation applications use real time traffic data to estimate travel time. However, traffic is always changing, even as one is driving, thus causing inaccurate times. In response, we developed GetMeThere.

GetMeThere uses historical traffic data to predict traffic at a certain time. GetMeThere determines the time taken for each leg of a trip, and uses the new time to predict the traffic for the next leg. The result is a more accurate depiction of what your intended trip will look like.
