Sometimes it’s enough to make you ?
Fear not! The City of West Palm Beach just partnered with Waze GPS App (owned by Google) to update the public with real-time traffic information.
So now before you leave your house you can map out your route to avoid road closures and traffic.
The city is using the Waze for Cities partnership to accomplish this.
Waze’s primary goal is to be your partner in mobility. That means getting Waze-reported incident data to government officials who can help, whether it’s a five-car pile-up or a pothole. It means getting data from government partners to ensure Waze drivers have the best real-time, location-based information about what’s happening in their communities. And of course helping cities improve congestion, sustainability, and access through carpooling.Waze for Cities website.
Check out these case studies that show how Waze has worked with other cities.
“The City is increasingly using data and technology to help improve the lives of our citizens, business owners, and visitors,” said Mayor Keith A. James. “The information-sharing partnership with Waze helps us to communicate with the public and inform decisions. This is one of many steps we are taking to utilize technology to improve quality of life and shape our city’s future.”
