Waze for Cities

Working together for a smarter, more sustainable future

Over a thousand cities and other public sector partners are already working with Waze to gain better data and insights; reduce driving alone with Waze Carpool; and to make their communities safer with Waze's Beacons and Crisis programs. Find out more about what Waze has to offer and how your organization can join this incredible network.

Waze for Cities Data

Helping cities manage traffic for millions of drivers in real time and make better infrastructure decisions

Cities use Waze’s data to inform mobility projects and policies, from congestion pricing to event-specific traffic control, as well as share their own information about street closures or construction directly with their citizens on a daily basis. Partners can choose to access this data via Google Cloud.

Waze Carpool

Helping neighbors and coworkers commute better by riding together

A true peer-to-peer carpooling service, Carpool helps residents get to and from work, filling in gaps in the transit network. Scalable, aordable, and ready to use today, cities that adopt Waze Carpool benefit from fewer cars on the road. Drivers save money on gas while riders get access to more transportation options.

Waze Beacons Program

Providing uninterrupted navigation to drivers underground where GPS signals don’t reach

The Waze Beacons Program ensures location services, increased driver safety, and better visibility into traffic flow in and out of tunnels. Waze Beacons are open sourced so any GPS navigation provider can take advantage of their technology.

Real-Time Crisis Communications

Helping cities get the word out quickly in times of crisis

From road closures to emergency service locations and shelters, Waze is here to help citizens. During winter storm Stella, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey partnered with Waze to alert drivers to road changes by adding hazards that align with variable messaging signs.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

What is the cost of partnering with Waze?

We believe the best mobility solutions come from working together, so we don't charge for our partner programs.

What are the resources available to partners?

Partners have access to an exclusive tool for inputting road closures and surfacing major traffic events or emergencies. Partners are also invited to join a partner-only online forum that serves as a hub of collaboration and a space to discuss both strategic and operational issues.

What is the primary goal of Waze for Cities partnerships?

Waze's primary goal is to be your partner in mobility. That means getting Waze-reported incident data to government ocials 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.
