I will be attending this event on behalf of Waze and Waze Carpool. I hope to establish a relationship with contacts in key Government Ministries to assist in establishing a permanent base for Waze and Waze Carpool here in Trinidad and Tobago. While Waze Carpool is not available here in Trinidad as yet, it is my wish that with enough exposure and with enough petition requests, Waze will take notice and enable the feature for us.

Waze CCP is free for Governments to use. Waze CCP would be able to inform key Ministries ie Ministry of Works and Transport, exact locations of potholes and un-serviceable traffic lights.Waze CCP would be able to inform emergency services, fire rescue & police of locations of traffic accidents so they can respond immediately to those in need. Many 1st World countries are using it to see where traffic conjestion occurs during the day and how they can plan infrastructure upgrades with minimal impact to their daily users.Waze gives its users a real time display of traffic buildup and re-routes the planned drive accordingly. Ministries can input planned traffic upgrades so that at a specific time & date, the new traffic rules will take effect across the Waze traffic platform.

On behalf of Dr Trevor Townsend, the Head of the Civil and Environmental Engineering department at UWI, St. Augustine, I would like to invite you to attend the first Transportation Symposium hosted by the department. This free event will be hosted on May 16th 2019, from 8 am to 1:30 pm. The symposium’s goal is to bring professionals from different disciplines together to discuss solutions to the transportation problems currently faced by the country and become a foundation for progressing with implementing these solutions. Therefore, we believe that your attendance at this event will be beneficial to the discussion.

We will be having armchair discussions on the effects of urban planning and socio-economics on the island's transportation system. As well as presentations on data collection, public transportation, demographics and more, from influential persons in the industry and academia.

Due to the limited space at this event, I am kindly asking you to pre-register through the link below. If you do not receive a confirmation response within 48 hours, please contact me at this email.

Feel free to forward the form to anyone you believe would be interested in this event. If you have any questions or problems registering, please contact me at leahwright05@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you at this event!
