[[Image:Exit1.JPG|right|200px]][[Image:Exit2.jpg|right|200px]]
Exit ramps and Entrance ramps are to be set as {{Ramp}} road type. ''The name of the ramp should match the exit or entrance signage as closely as possible. Minimal - minimal disparity between sign and instruction is our goal. '' If done properly, the driver will not have to struggle to compare Waze's on-screen or verbal instructions with what he or she sees in real life on the road.<br /> * If For '''Exit Ramps''', if an exit is signed :* ''Signed and numbered, '' - name the exit ramp as such: "Exit 24: US-103 / Schwarzenegger Rd". In other words, start with the word "Exit" followed by the exit number, follow the exit number with a colon (": "), and separate all elements (shields and names) after the colon with slashes (" / ").* If an exit is signed ''Signed and unnumbered, '' - name the exit ramp as such: "to SR-33 / Kindergarten Ct". In other words, start with the word "to" (lowercase) followed by all elements on the sign (shields and names), separated with slashes (" / "). {{color|'''(This rule has changed recently.)'''|color=red}}** '''''Note:''' If the exit number is assigned and designated by the local roadway agency, but does not yet appear on the sign, it is OK to include the exit number in advance of it appearing on the road sign. This prevents additional updates later when the numbered sign is added to the roadway , and it helps visual guidance when other exits before that one said exit are numbered. Drivers can better anticipate their approaching exit.''* If an exit is unsigned, ''Unsigned'' - include the designation and/or name of the road as if it is signed (i.e., starting with "to"). For example, if an unsigned exit serves "US-12", a signed highway which is locally known as "Michigan Ave", name the ramp segment "to US-12 / Michigan Ave". If only a local name or only a highway designation are present, use only that.
* If a single exit serves multiple roads or cities, use a slash with leading and trailing spaces: "Exit 32: Terminator Blvd / Total Recall Rd".
* If an exit number contains one or more letters, include it exactly as displayed on the sign: "Exit 33B: Running Man St", or "Exits 35C-B-A: Junior Dr / Twins Ave / Jingle Allthe Way".
* If the exit off the main interstate or highway serves multiple exits further down the road, it may be advisable not to name the first exit ramp, but rather name only the ramps which are the first one to a distinct destination. The Waze client will give all the proper exit and keep left or right instructions to guide the driver to the correct exit, even if the first one is not named. That said, this should only be done if the signage for the first ramp is the same as that on the subsequent, named ramp.
For entrance ramps'''Entrance Ramps''', use this format: "to [street name] [direction] / [control city]", where applicable. For example,
* "to I-10 W / Baton Rouge"
* "to Clearview Pkwy N / Mandeville"
