The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario has partnered with Waze, the world’s largest community based traffic and navigation app, to make it even easier for Ontario travelers to plan their journeys.
Ontario 511 now publishes crowd-sourced information from Waze such as collisions, congestion, and driving hazards online at Ontario.ca/511. This information, combined with ministry-reported data on road conditions, construction, closures, and forecast weather conditions, that will give people a more complete picture when planning their journey.
Waze provides real-time, anonymous, user and app-generated incident and traffic information to its government partners through its Connected Citizen Program, in exchange, Ontario 511 provides Waze access to its public data on road construction, incidents and closures. Together, Ontario 511 and Waze create one of the most thorough overviews of current road conditions available to people travelling in Ontario.
