How to read RSS feeds


Some browsers, such as the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, and Safari, have RSS readers built in. If you're using a browser that doesn't currently support RSS, there are a variety of RSS readers available online. In addition, search engines such as Google and Yahoo! allow you to add RSS feed information to your personalized home page. You can also subscribe to RSS feeds on your mobile device using the appropriate software.

Traffic Information RSS Feeds

Houston TranStar offers RSS feeds for all reported incidents, lane closures, and travel times. In addition, there are custom feeds available for specified roadways that contain a combination of all three items. This allows you to view only traffic information that is important to you. Each feed is typically updated every three minutes. Note that as the feeds are developed and new information is added, the format and content of each feed is subject to change without notice. A link to each feed is listed below.
