Trafi, the app that promises more accurate traffic info, is now in the U.S.

Your morning commute may be getting easier. After helping busy Europeans find the most efficient public transit routes, the free transit app Trafi is finally coming to the U.S. Now, you can access Trafi’s realtime data on routes around your city in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas-Forth Worth, and Houston.

The app promises to combine proprietary algorithms, realtime processing of traffic situations, and crowd-sourced reports to give users the most accurate travel data possible. Trafi claims that this unique combination allows it to predict travel and arrival times more accurately than other services on the market.

Even if you don’t have Wi-Fi or service (which always seems to happen when you need it most), Trafi features an offline mode that still allows users to access the app’s advice.

“AT TRAFI we love challenges: with our technology and local partners we were able to improve transit infrastructure and help commuters to take better decisions in the most complex cities like Jakarta, Mumbai, São Paulo or Moscow,” said Martynas Gudonavičius, CEO of Trafi. “With numerous requests from our fans worldwide, we are happy to provide the most accurate transit data and unique app features here in the U.S. This is just the beginning as we will continue to expand to new markets.”

The app’s launch in LA features data from over 50 different sources, which Trafi claims will “not only help you plan your trips, but also to help a newcomer understand the extent and characteristics of the system.”

While only a few American cities will be privy to Trafi’s initial U.S. launch, the London-based startup promises more launches in the near future, “bringing the biggest coverage and data quality that will improve on a day-to-day basis.”

So if you’re tired of confused and confusing navigation systems, you may want to check out Trafi, coming to a city near you.
