The functionality, according to Waze, is one of the most requested within the community, the result of a collaborative effort with over 30,000 active map editors. With the partnership, users are in charge of collecting the values and entering the information on the platform so that other wazers can know the cost of driving on a highway. Thus, information can help people plan travel expenses in advance.
According to Waze's CEO for Brazil, Leandro Esposito, data about values are collected with the help of users of the application. "We are very happy to be able to bring the Toll Prices to Brazil. No one knows better about the values of each toll than the driver who goes through it every day. Therefore, the information coming from the valuable users reinforces it even more. Waze is geared toward people and the community.
