Waze

Users of the Waze app warn each other of upcoming auto accidents, speed traps, rerouted traffic, and other disruptions on the road. The groundbreaking app continues to innovate: In 2016, it launched the Beacons navigation program, which alerts drivers to upcoming exits in places notorious for GPS outages, like tunnels; it launched Transport SDK, enabling users to switch between Waze and other transportation apps (Waze partnered with cab apps Lyft, 99 Taxis, and Cabify); it marked the 100th partner in its Connected Citizens program, which provides advance notice and real-time updates on municipal government-reported construction, crashes, and road closures; and it initiated a Waze Carpool feature to encourage ridesharing in San Francisco. In time for the world’s most popular event, the Olympics, held in 2016 in one of the planet’s most traffic-challenged metropolises, Rio de Janeiro, Waze introduced crime-risk alerts that covered destinations and points en route. Waze is also helping to save lives with alerts designed to prevent adults from accidentally leaving children behind in hot cars.
