  • Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) offers Real Time Traffic for L.A. and surrounding counties.
  • has free maps of freeway traffic conditions available online. also gives you the option to sign up for a service delivering more personalized reports on your route, including travel times, via the Web, email or phone, for a modest monthly fee.
