Clear Channel Radio’s Total Traffic Network (CCTTN) yesterday announced that it will further expand its delivery of real-time traffic data over RDS-TMC (Radio Data System Traffic Message Channel) on December 1 with the addition of 10 new markets. Coverage will now span 80 metropolitan areas.

“With the addition of these 10 markets, CCTTN extends its leadership and offers the most coverage in the industry by providing over 194 million people with the most reliable traffic data for use on a wide selection of devices,” said Jeff Littlejohn, Executive Vice President of Distribution Development for Clear Channel Radio.

The additional markets include Baton Rouge, LA; Colorado Springs, CO; Des Moines, IA; Ft. Pierce, FL; Greenville, SC; Harrisburg, PA; Huntsville, AL; Lexington, KY; Madison, WI and Tulsa, OK. This expanded coverage is made available to existing subscribers without additional charge.

Customers that are currently using Clear Channel Radio’s Total Traffic Network include consumer electronics devices made by Garmin, TomTom, Navigon, Mio Technology, Delphi, Kenwood, Clarion, Harmon Kardon, Panasonic, Siemens, Cobra Electronics and others. On the automotive front, BMW became the first automotive brand in the United States in September 2006 to offer real-time traffic as a subscription free service included with navigation on select models. It has been followed earlier this year by MINI.
