The traffic-addled residents of Austin, Texas can look forward to some extra assistance with their morning commute, thanks to a new partnership with Waze and KVUE, ABC’s local TV news affiliate in the area.
Traffic is one of Austin’s biggest problems and we’re thrilled be doing our part to help the local community beat the gridlock!
Tapping into the power of Austin’s drivers, KVUE’s Traffic Trooperz will now be using Waze to help drivers avoid the bad spots on their daily commute with real time insights into what’s going on in the road. In a special on-air interview, Waze’s Michal Habdank-Kolaczkowski explains how just driving with Waze on is enough to contribute traffic data and how seriously we take safe driving with our special voice activated features.
KVUE is the latest to join up with Waze’s broadcast partner program. Other partners include local TV stations in big U.S. metros such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas and Philadelphia.
