Wayne County Rolls Out New Travel App

ROMULUS (WWJ) — Wayne County’s departments of public service and technology Monday rolled out Compass, a smartphone and web app designed to make driving smarter and safer.

Check the Web version of Compass at http://compass.waynecounty.com/.

The original version of Compass offered the current location of Wayne County plow trucks. The new version of Compass offers the following functionalities:

* Pinpointing your location with GPS

* Showing the nearest police station, towing service, gas station, auto repair business, and hospital, with addresses and phone numbers from your location

* A popup window and phone link to report road hazards like potholes and fallen trees

* Up-to-the-minute information on road construction and accidents so drivers can avoid delays

* Storm tracking and weather radar.

Earlier this year, the first version of Wayne County Compass earned an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties.
