That may be true to a certain extent (especially Manhattan), but it is so densely populated the number should really be higher. I would think 8 million people within the 5 boroughs & 22 million in the metro area would yield more than 900 Wazers? Not sure, however, whether they have some kind of radius count or if it's a cumulative number for an entire metro area?

I actually caught 1325 around 5:15pm that same night. The Friday prior I think I caught 1380 or so? That's a huge bump from 6 months ago!

Since I was reading this thread at 5:10pm, I decided to check Waze for this data right now.

For Philadelphia:

974 Wazers
306 Reports
144 Jams

Wow, nice! I have yet to see 1400 crossed.

Last week I was in the Bronx for a work meeting. When I turned Waze on around 6:30pm, there were over 3300 users on...wow.

Saw 1725 at 5pm in Philly today. A bump from mapgate already?


How about over 2000 this past Friday evening at 5:30pm? First 2000+ i've ever seen & based on the amount of newbies on the roads, the iOS6 issue definitely played a part.

Also, I saw over 1100 yesterday morning around 7:15am which is the first morning commute I've seen over 1000. It may be higher at different times, but at my departure time, that's definitely an all time high.

Six months ago, Philadelphia was showing 700 on a good day. It's a combination of natural growth, the Apple maps issue, and the top-rated local ABC affliliate using it for traffic reporting. When I'm driving around now, probably 20%+ of the users having a group shield is showing their logo.

It also helps to have a good core of dedicated, knowledgeable local editors. If new users are presented with a quality map, they're more likely to stick around.

Over this past week I've been seeing 4000-5000 in Philadelphia and 9000-10,000 when I cross the bridge into New Jersey. Not sure why they're separate, but I suppose there's a reason. Either way, these numbers are basically double what they were less than a month ago, and 4x what we were seeing 9 months back.

NJ is split amongst a few US Census Bureau Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and that is what the Waze areas are based off of. (Or was it is the Combined Statistical Areas, CSAs? Same impact either way.)

This is actually why I questioned it...I guess it's splitting hairs, but it's the "Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD Metropolitan Statistical Area" which includes 5 counties in New Jersey. I just find it odd that the "Philadelphia" & "Wilmington" areas are combined on Waze while the "Camden" area is separate AND gives numbers 2-3x that across the river. The 5 counties that make up the NJ portion of the MSA don't even equal the population of Philadelphia County. Is it possible that all of NJ is combined together? I get similar numbers when I cross into Mercer County in both the Trenton & Princeton areas.

It really doesn't matter, other than it makes the sixth largest MSA look like it has terrible Waze penetration when I don't think that's the case at all.

But you shouldn't be leaving the Philadelphia–Camden–Wilmington MSA (or the Philadelphia-Reading-Camden CSA) unless you're crossing the bridge at Trenton. I suspect they're using the CSAs as 1) the numbers would be bigger (look better for marketing) and 2) I commute from the Baltimore-Columbia-Towson MSA to the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria MSA (while staying in the Washington-Baltimore-Arlington CSA) without typically seeing any changes in the numbers.


Exactly...and I notice the higher numbers are similar regardless of whether I'm crossing into NJ around Trenton or if I'm farther south in the Burlington/Camden/ Gloucester County areas. I'm currently sitting less than 1000 feet from the Delaware River, so I cross the river in both areas at least weekly.

In the UK we don't automatically get these stats but scrolling around this morning I managed to count 4 Wazers, 0 reports and 0 jams in the whole of South Wales!
