Show traffic conditions in Maps on Mac
You can show traffic conditions in Maps so that you can plan the fastest route and leave enough travel time.
In the Maps app on your Mac, click in the search field, then enter the name of the location that you want to check.
Click the Map button , then select Driving (or select Satellite, click the More button , then verify there’s a tickmark next to Show Traffic).
Orange indicates slow traffic, and red indicates stop-and-go traffic. A marker appears anywhere there’s a traffic incident.
To get more information about a traffic incident, click a marker on the map.
There are four incident markers:
appears when there’s a crash.
appears when there are roadworks.
appears when there’s a road closure.
appears for a general alert.
If you have a Mac with Apple silicon, you can also see road details like turn lanes, central reservations, crossings and more — just zoom in.
