WTXF - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and popular traffic app Waze have formed a partnership in order to improve traffic information, Gov. Tom Wolf announced Monday.
Under terms of the deal, Waze and PennDOT will share data with one another. Waze will share its crowd-sourced traffic and incident reports with PennDOT, while PennDOT will share its road condition reporting data with Waze.
"As travelers rely more and more on their smartphones for real-time traffic data, this new partnership represents yet another way PennDOT is modernizing to keep up with the demands of its customers," Governor Wolf said in a statement.
The deal is part of Waze’s Connected Citizens program.
