Hillsborough MPO will provide WAZE information about school zones, posted speed limits, parking garage and where electric vehicle charging stations. In exchange, WAZE will offer continuous speed data, and show when congested, routing and road hazards.
The MPO board believes this could have a huge impact on local drivers, after reviewing data from the partnership in other cities. “‘We can see where are the trouble spots, where are the areas that are most congested, what areas need the most help,” said MPO Board and Tampa City Council member Guido Maniscalco. The city and county plan to use this data to make changes to bad traffic spots. They also feel adding additional information to an app many residents already use will also help with the commute.
