Not Your Father’s 511

The relaunched 511 website for Prince Edward Island is a cavalcade of useful features, chief among which is that you can define a route, like your commute to and from work, and then set up alerts to receive by email and/or SMS, when there are delays, closures, construction, or adverse weather conditions along that route.

Here, for example, is the setup for a notification for my drive from home to Stars for Life every Monday and Thursday:
