Intercity motorway is a control-accessed highway in which the exits and entrants are all fixed along the route of the motorway. In this model, it is rather difficult for the motorists to remember or know what are businesses on certain exits. The Motorway Travel Information System (MTIS) is designed to assist motorists in accessing services on the route and direction of travels. The services are a few rest areas with services and a number of exits. MTIS is context-ware in terms of time and location. So, the MTIS can warn and alert motorist on certain services based on the context and on the request. The system requires the data collection of all the business entities on each of the exits must be registered with the MTIS service so that when a request is issued by the motorist, the MTIS can find an exit or a group of exits that can satisfy the requests by the motorists. Several heuristics are presented to find the services satisfying the motorist's request.
