    I've seen screen shots of traffic info in the Notification Center...specifically in Today's View, based on your Frequent Locations from other people.

    I checked and I have both my home and work logged in Frequent Locations history, I have Traffic and Maps on in Location services, but nothing pops up in the Notification Center.

    Any ideas what I'm missing?

    Mine only showed itself for the first time on Monday, so it could just need to gather more information. Otherwise, it may be just a bug within the Beta.

    Perhaps. I remember seeing it pop up one time, but never to be seen again.

    it popped up for me the first time this morning. It told me in current traffic conditions it would take me roughly 10 minutes to drive to work. Pretty awesom. I did nothing on my part for it to happen, it just popped up on its own.

    You need to stop staring at your phone and actually leave your house for it to work... :p

    I can't wait to see how much this feature progresses by launch. Wondering if it will also allow other personalized features like Google Now provides (favorite sport team info, etc.)

    When I'm at home in Orpington it pops up and tells me I'm 7 minutes away from Bromley.

    Which is fine, but I don't live nor work in Bromley and have been there once since installing Beta 1 lol!

    It learns your frequent locations so eventually the more places you go the better a pattern it can relate to and provide more accurate information.

    Interesting feature for a phone. And it's only the software that's new.

    I wonder where it's pulling the traffic data from. For anyone with the beta able to check? Unless its under NDA or something.

    Set your home address in your contact which Siri uses.

    Probably the same place it is pulling it from in iOS6...Waze, users who have "traffic" turned on and public traffic sources.

    Makes sense, but wasn't Waze just bought by Google? Hope Apple doesn't lose access to the traffic data.

    If you click on it, it shows you a map and directions. In my case, it's because Apple Maps puts all the smaller towns in my area under the blanket of the bigger town.
