How do you know the rush hour commute time if you are new in Charlotte, or have an important meeting in the place you are not familiar with?
Google Maps can give you the answer. It is a very cool function. It can calculate the upcoming trip time.
First, you need to search the route from your origin to destination.
Then, choose your departure time. You can see the function button just below the From-To information box. The default is “leave now”. Click on it, and change the departure time.
Ding! You now have your rush hour commute time. This Google Map function is quite accurate since the calculation is highly complex and based on all sorts of factors including road conditions and historic traffic data.
