I just noticed Google Maps new feature. It allows the user to get approximate drive times for a specific date and time using average traffic conditions. This is a feature which many people have been wanting for quite some time. It allows the user to choose to depart at a specific time or arrive at a specific time. In the later case it recommends a time for the user to leave. The drive time is given as a possible range of times (see the screencap below).
My question is; how is this range of times defined? Is it the minimum to maximum range, the 90% confidence interval, or perhaps the 25th to 75th percentile?
