Can I use Google Maps traffic information to estimate driving time for a specific date/time?
In supported regions, Google Maps will tell me how long it will take to drive from A to B in current traffic conditions. It can also colour-code roads according to traffic conditions for a specific date and time of the week. However, is it possible to estimate driving time for a specific date and time of the week?
(For a (long) weekend trip, I'm estimating whether it's worth to take the train from Toronto to Barrie and rent a car from there, as opposed to renting a car from Toronto)
Few minutes ago, it took me 1h30 to drive from semangi plaza, Jakarta to ciledug, Jakarta, while google maps told me it would take 21 minutes (including traffic), I never trust the traffic thing in maps. It also showed me wrong traffic information...
@NeanDerThal Has the Google Maps time estimate reliability in your area improved at all in the past 4½ years?
Google maps recently added the possibility of doing exactly this! I noticed it for the first time today. When you query the route for a specific destination a new option shows up above the possible routes which allows you to choose to depart at a particular time or arrive at a particular time. In the later case it suggests the time that you should leave. The length of the drive is given as a range of times which can, admittedly, be pretty broad. I have asked the communnity how this range of drive times is defined, but it has not received an answer as of yet.
