Phoenix Rental Facility Offers High-Tech Traffic Navigation

PHOENIX --- The consolidated car rental facility at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport offers customers the ability to see what they are likely to encounter when they hit the roads.

A traffic-information system, comprising four, 40-inch monitors situated throughout the customer-service atrium, alerts drivers with real-time travel data for the Phoenix roadways. Each monitor displays a large area map that indicates accidents, delays and average travel times.

Phoenix, the third-largest car rental market in the U.S., claims that its airport boasts the first traffic information array of its kind in the country.
