Georgia DOT partners with Waze app

ATLANTA, Ga. (WDEF) – Georgia Department of Transportation officials announced a data-sharing partnership with the Waze app on Thursday.

That’s a free, real-time, crowd-sourced navigation app powered by the world’s largest community of drivers.

The partnership provides real-time, anonymous, Waze-generated incident and slow-down information to Georgia DOT. It comes directly from the source: drivers themselves.

In exchange, Georgia DOT provides real-time construction, crash and road closure data to Waze.

Officials say this partnership leads to a thorough overview of current road conditions.

They add the data sharing partnership is seen as significant for both the NaviGAtor and Waze platforms.

NaviGAtor 511 is Georgia’s traveler information system.

That’s a State Farm sponsored free public service of the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Access it here or call 5-1-1 anywhere in Georgia.

Authorities say NaviGAtor 511 enhances mobility, safety and efficiency. That’s by providing travelers with real-time, route-specific travel information and 24/7 access to live operators.

That means always buckle up, stay off the phone and no texting while driving.
