Travelers can help other travelers get around more easily with these four crowdsourcing apps, available now.

 

Waze

Find the fastest way to and from anywhere with this community sourced traffic app, that also includes alerts for accidents, construction and other issues. Additionally, Waze helps you find the lowest priced gas. Any commuter, daily or traveler, will benefit from the app’s heads up. Waze is free on Google Play and in the App Store and Windows Phone Store.

 

GasBuddy

While traveling, this app will help you find the cheapest gas in both the United States and Canada. This is the road tripper’s very best friend. Also complimentary, the app is available on Google Play, in the App Store and for Windows and BlackBerry phones.

 

Moovit

Moovit covers more than 400 cities around the world, providing the fastest and least congested routes in real time for public transportation. It’s perfect when navigating new-to-you city transportation or when trying to get from one place to the other during rush hour, available online from the App Store, Google Play and the Windows Store.

 

Miflight

Covered before on Trazee, the app that lets other travelers find out the length of airport security lines is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to expand globally. Help out here. The app currently covers more than 50 airports. Download it for free in the App Store.
