Waze first launched, its core was about
outsmarting traffic together. CCP is a next natural
evolution of Waze. Now, we’re really
talking about saving time for millions of people. PAIGE FITZGERALD:
Our drivers are out on the streets
every hour of every day, reporting the most
accurate information on closures and congestion. We are taking that
information and delivering it to the government officials,
who can address incidents in real time. JULIE MOSSLER: This is a real
program with real impact. We’re actually sitting
down with partners and having measurable
results every day. CONNOR MCKAY: Boston is a city
of around 600,000 residents, but during a typical workday, we
grow to over a million people. Waze has allowed us to rapidly
iterate through experiments, to see what sort of
effect interventions have on congestion and traffic. CHRIS LAMBERT: We had a
major snow last March. Seeing the data come in
from Waze every two minutes allows us to grab
user reports and then we can respond to those
reports in a timely manner. PHIL BURKS: Genesis
is a software company that provides solutions
to help first responders. By putting Waze inside
our Genesis PULSE product, our first responders
are saving five minutes. And that saves lives. DI-ANN EISNOR: We didn’t
expect that so quickly, we would have cities redistributing
traffic personnel, that we would have 911
systems relying on this data. PAIGE FITZGERALD: As
more data comes online, Waze is proud to bring together
innovative transportation leaders from all
around the world to develop the next chapter
in traffic management. DI-ANN EISNOR: At
the core, CCP has the same mission
as Waze, which is to save people time every day. It’s showing us
what our new goals are going to be–
new forms of safety, new forms of urban mobility,
helping cities become a lab for making lives better.
