Rush Hour is use to adjust the ETA time during heavy traffic for certain periods. The program will adjust the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) accordingly if there is a match in the Rush Hour.
In the following example, a Rush Hour – Morning – 5.00 AM to 11.00 AM has been created. The same list of stops had been planned without and with the Rush Hour for comparison. The ETA of the stops with the Rush Hour enabled were all increased by the set buffer amount of 50% within the Rush Hour.
How To Set Up Rush Hour
