San Francisco is developing what may the country's most advanced public traffic-reporting system. When completed, the Bay Area Metropolitan transit commission's 511 project will be able to tell drivers not only current driving times but also where and why delays are occurring, to help drivers who wish to alter their route. Hear NPR's Robert Siegel and Michael Berman, the 511 project manager.
