    Real-time, Canadian traffic data for mobile?

    I am looking for a website / app that provides real-time traffic data for Toronto.

    Something formatted for mobile would be perfect.

    Is there such a thing?

    Cheers

    Nothing mobile for Canada yet. So far, there is the xm traffic service which only works with certain gps devices like the garmin nuvi 660. Mapquest and telenav have a traffic service, but not in the canadian market yet. Give it time, and i'm sure something will hit Canada eventually.

    I use this (but it is not formatted for mobile): http://globisdata.ca/toronto-traffic.html
    in fact, for mobile, u only need to open this image map in ur browser: http://globisdata.ca/maps/tor.png
    that u can refresh manually as needed.

    Actually it's a pilot project with rogers right now. Can't call up the link cause i'm mobile but i'm sure search will find it. It's gonna judge traffic using cell phones and how long it takes em to cross the towers
