It all started with some frustration sitting in the SF Bay Area's gridlock. It took one engineer, Andre Gueziec, to start experimenting with public traffic data in real time. There was born sfbaytraffic.info, our first product, and one of the first websites ever to provide live traffic information. Sfbytraffic.info rapidly turned into BeatTheTraffic.com and expanded to the rest of the country. Today millions of people use Beat the Traffic make their daily commute more enjoyable.
