Navigation and Travel Assistance

Google Maps makes navigating your world faster and easier. Find the best places in town and the information you need to get there.
Get there faster with real-time updates: real-time ETAs and traffic conditions, catch your bus, train, or ride-share with real-time transit info, automatic re-routing based on live traffic, incidents, and road closures, lane guidance, pit stops along your route like gas stations and coffee spots, and more.

Get the best route with real–time help from other drivers. Waze is the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money on their daily commute.
So, how does it work? After typing in your destination address, you just drive with the app open on your phone to passively contribute traffic and other road data, but you can also take a more active role by sharing road reports on accidents, police traps, or any other hazards along the way, helping to give other users in the area a 'heads-up' about what's to come.

In addition to the local communities of drivers using the app, Waze is also home to an active community of online map editors who ensure that the data in their areas is as up-to-date as possible.
