Between November 2005 and October 2006, there were 328,095 calls made to the 511 telephone system. The Web site recorded 3,785,413 “hits” during the period. The most calls and site visits occurred in December 2005, with 89,638 and 846,015, respectively.
In preparation of the winter driving season, extensive media coordination was completed in November to inform the traveling public of the 511 information system. Some of those efforts included television and radio advertisements and printed material like posters, business cards and promotional “palm” cards.
