How Waze works

Waze analyzes real-time information from the world’s largest community of drivers and compares current traffic patterns with historical road data.


Waze users are the main source of traffic data. Users report traffic both passively, by driving with Waze open and actively, by reporting incidents, photos, and map problems.

All of this results in the fastest and most accurate traffic data available.
