China TransInfo Technology (CTFO) has partnered with Chinese search engine Baidu to provide real-time traffic information services in five Chinese cities.

Under the deal CTFO will provide information for Baidu’s map search services in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chengdu and Chongqing.

The deal allows CTFO to adopt Baidu’s mapping technologies and interfaces for the joint development of new applications for mapping real-time traffic information.

CTFO now provides traffic services in ten Chinese cities after it added coverage to Dalian and Nanjing.
