Traffic info for Londoners just got a whole lot more tech-savvy after TfL teamed up with an app which tells you just how busy the roads are.
In exchange for telling the app, Waze, where roadworks or closures are happening, TfL will get the latest traffic data in return.
Drivers and passengers send in info to Waze by downloading the app and submitting a quick report if they come across delays or congestion.
It’s illegal to text and drive, so the app has built in protections to stop this happening.
“We can not only ensure London’s road users have the information they need to plan their journeys but we can also draw in more data to help us manage London’s busy road network,” Phil Young from TfL told the BBC.
Waze, which has been bought by Google, came to Britain in 2011. It plans to expand its connection to TfL in the coming years to other British cities if it works in London.
