Last edit: 2022.08.15


The Traffic Flow service is a suite of web services designed for developers to create web and mobile applications around real-time traffic. These web services can be used via RESTful APIs. The Traffic Flow API's are based on real-time traffic data from TomTom Traffic™. The Traffic API Traffic Flow service consists of the the following endpoints:
