In addition to traffic camera access, OhGo provides traffic alerts, travel time estimations, indicators of road construction and winter condition warnings on its Web platform. OhGo is administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation and uses a number of the department's tools to deliver accurate, timely traffic information to the public. Some of these tools include pavement sensors, monitoring stations, traffic cameras and direct input from employees of ODOT. As of May 2015, OhGo's traffic camera data is accessible through any modern browser, but the service does not have its own mobile application.

OhGo's traffic speed and camera data are updated on a minute-by-minute basis. The service informs its users that its sensors and cameras do not measure individual speed and are thus not used for law enforcement. OhGo provides XML feeds for its traffic camera and road activity information, allowing owners of other websites to integrate its data into their own services. The service also provides API documentation to help developers make effective use of the feed for their own applications.
