Malaysian Metros Among APAC’s Top 5 in Waze Driver Satisfaction Index

Waze is back for its third annual Driver Satisfaction Index! And for the first time, the infographic offers region specific data for countries in Asia Pacific. Two Malaysian territories – Central Malacca, as well as Larut & Matang in Perak, clinched the fourth and fifth rank as the best places to be a driver in the region. Only Perth, Melbourne and Sydney – all in Australia, beat us to the top three spots.

The Waze Driver Satisfaction Index analyzes the driving experience of millions of monthly active Waze users in 39 countries and 217 metros to create a single numeric score, from a satisfying (10) to a miserable (1).  Malaysia ranked 21 on the global index.

While Waze has more than 90 million monthly active users globally in more than 185 countries, Waze chose to focus on countries and metros with more than 40,000+ monthly active users to ensure data accuracy and fair market comparisons.

Many traffic indices only look at a single quantifiable factor such as time spent in traffic. The Driver Satisfaction Index measures six qualitative and quantitative attributes – Traffic, Safety, Driver Services, Road Quality, Socio-Economics and Wazeyness – to provide an unprecedented look at the overall driver experience in towns or cities and countries worldwide.

Check out the tables below for the top countries on the APAC index and to see the Malaysian Driver Satisfaction Index.
