will give you travel time information from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).


First, you need to get a free Traveler Information api_key from the WSDOT API webpage. Just enter your email address to instantly get the key.


Once you have the code, create wsdot sensors by editing your configuration.yaml file as follows:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: wsdot
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
     - id: 95
       name: I-90 Eastbound HOV

Configuration Variables

api_key string Required

Your API key from WSDOT.

travel_time list Required

List of routes.

id string Required

ID of the route.

name string (Optional)

Name of the route.


Just uses id

Figuring out which Travel Time ID (id) is associated with your routes is a bit of a challenge. If you visit https://wsdot.com/Traffic/api/TravelTimes/TravelTimesREST.svc/GetTravelTimesAsJson?AccessCode=[your_api_key_here] substituting your api_key, you will get a list of all available routes. Search through it and then find the key TravelTimeID. That tells you the number you need.

Some common examples include:

 73 Issaquah-Seattle (WB PM)
 74 Seattle-Issaquah (EB AM)
 75 HOV Issaquah-Seattle (WB REV)
 76 Issaquah-Seattle (WB REV)
