Working together: partners, map editors and Waze localization
Washington D.C. DOT, U.S.A

In a combined partner-community effort, Waze’s major traffic events team worked with DDOT and the local community to help both supporters and protesters navigate the streets of Washington D.C. during the United States Presidential Inauguration events in January 2017. Our localization team updated the map and sent notifications to local Wazers letting them know how the huge event would affect their daily routes and the best way to get to a ceremony or demonstration.


  • 200+ roads closed
  • Push notifications to ~500,000 Wazers
