==High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) ==
 
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' Until HOV and toll transponders are pushed to production you have to be careful to not adversely affect the production app users. If you haven't mapped the HOV lanes then probably best to just set up for HOV. If HOV lanes were already set up so that people can use HOV if they drive over the first segment then you can set it up to continue. Have the first segment set up properly using HOV allowed restriction and then add private vehicle and taxi to all the subsequent segments. If you have a toll road that only allows transponders then setting up for transponder use will prevent all production app users. Add private vehicle and taxi to all segments till transponders are pushed to production.}}
 
===Intro===
Waze has HOV routing! This feature puts Waze out in front of the other navigation systems, but we need to know how to properly configure the map for a great user routing experience. There are a lot of considerations for getting all the options properly included, ; warnings about bugs and some not so please take your time and read it through the entire article prior obvious requirements are discussed (ex. allowable restrictions need to editingcover all toll free restrictions). If you have questions, then please reach out to your State Manager or Regional Coordinator and we’ll get you some help.
===Definitions===
====HOT====
HOT – High Occupancy Toll. This is a combination of toll road and HOV. Sometimes called “Lexus Lanes” since people can buy their way onto roads with less congestion. Electronic toll roads often require a special transponder set to HOV which mode, when there are enough people in the car in order to drive toll-free. The transponder then broadcasts that the car meets the HOV requirements so that the a toll is not charged.
====Express Lanes====
Express Lanes – There are two three main types of Express Lanes on the interstate system. They can either be HOT lanes or , lanes that have limited entrances/exits, or toll road to speed people willing to pay. This wiki section will just deal with the HOT type of Express Lanes and the segments should follow the guidance for HOT below. Express Lanes that have limited entrances/exits are just mapped as normal freeways. Express Lanes that are just toll roads and don't have different HOV rates are just mapped as a toll road freeway.
====Clean Air Vehicle====
Clean Air Vehicles – '''future feature''' These vehicles meet the requirements for low emissions for the state that the person is operating the vehicle. The vehicles are normally either a hybrid or electric or natural gas vehicle. '''Note''' some states require special permits or license plates to qualify. States that have a decal to allow holders to use HOV lanes should be listed in the Transponder/Pass list. ===Toll attribute===[[File:Toll_attribute_box_checked.PNG|right|300px|border]]The toll attribute has moved from under the road segment name to the first popup page of a Time Based Segment Restriction (TBSR). It is in the bottom left corner of the first TBSR popup window.[[File:New toll.PNG|right|150px|border]]Mark a road segment as a toll segment only if the segment has a toll booth, transponder reader, or other tolling device and if no vehicles travel as toll free on that segment.

You have to go to the TBSR to deselect the attribute.
===Nearby HOV Attribute===* If at least one restriction is marked toll free, then it is assumed that all other vehicles not meeting the toll free requirements have to pay a toll.

===How to map HOV lane segments===
There are four types of HOV lanes
# Dashed line separation HOV - HOV lane that is part of the road and can be accessed or exited at any time
# Solid/double solid line HOV - HOV lane that is part of the road but can only be accessed or exited at certain places
# Separate parallel segment HOV - HOV lane that is physically separated from the rest of the road by a wall, cement barrier, flexible barrier, or land; only accessed from ramp segments other than initial entrance or final exit.
# Whole road HOV - HOV is entire road and there is no parallel path for non-HOV drivers
====Separated HOV lane====
*Separated HOV lanes are either lanes that are:
*#Completely separated by a physical distance from the normal lanes (ex. land, curbs, shoulders)
*#Separated by a concrete barrier from the normal lanes
*#Separated by solid or double solid lines from the normal lanes
*#Separated by flexible barriers from the normal lanes
Insert pictures of ====Enter/exit anywhere HOV====*HOV lanes that can be accessed or exited the entire time since drivers can cross the dashed line (or some areas a single solid white line) separationsat any time. Usually the lane will be marked with the white diamond painted on the roadway and have regulatory signs on the shoulder. Example is US-95 HOV in Las Vegas, NV. [[File:HOV_Diamond_and_sign.PNG‎|left|200px|border]][[File:HOV US95 LV.PNG|200px|border]][[File:I66_E_outside_beltway.PNG‎|right|200px|border]]
*'''Mapping separated lane''' - The separate lane should be mapped as a normal parallel segment that is distinct from the normal road.
====Dashed line separation====
*Dashed line separations are transition areas where vehicles can merge from HOV lanes to regular lanes or from the regular lanes to the HOV lanes.
*There are two types of situations with the HOV dashed line separation:
*#Continual dashed line for the entire HOV lane. HOV vehicles can enter or exit at any location on the HOV lane
*#Transition zones, where there is a limited are for entering or leaving the HOV lane
*'''Mapping continual dashed line HOV lanes'''
*#Current guidance in forum is to map the HOV lane on the regular road segment
*#Follow restriction guidance for combined segment HOV and regular traffic in different lanes below
*'''Mapping transition zone dashed Bottom line up front - The HOV lane is mapped on the same segment(s) as the regular lanes.'''**Current forum guidance: This requires {{mbox|type=important|text= Remember '''DO NOT''' mark any road segment(s) with HOV lane(s) using the 'Next to carpool/HOV/bus lane' attribute.}} # Map the applicable road segment(s) for the road# The road segments for a dashed line separation HOV look the same as a merge ramp from road without HOV.# HOV to restrictions are added per the regular lanes and restrictions section below  {{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' Map if motorcycles are allowed by adding them as an allowed restriction. Note that until motorcycle is a merge ramp back to supported vehicle type, the motorcycle user should just indicate that they meet the HOV requirement(s).}} ====Limited enter/exit (transition zone) HOV====[[File:US-50_E_double_solid_line.PNG|right|250px|border]] Separated by solid or double solid lines from the normal laneswith periodic transition zones. Non-HOV travel is available on an adjacent parallel path (lane or segment). Be sure :Note for areas where it is legal to have each ramp labeled so that people know when cross the single solid white line refer to get into [[#Enter/exit anywhere HOV|Enter/exit anywhere HOV section]] above.:If all of the regular lanes highway entrances and exits are accessible to the HOV lane, then there is no functional difference to the routing that these laneshave restricted access. This configuration does cause problems You should also map this type of HOV using simple lane restrictions on a single set of segments as is done with excess commands for people already [[#Enter/exit anywhere HOV|Enter/exit anywhere HOV lanes]]. Waze will only route on this road if the person acknowledges that they meet the HOV lane and staying on requirement for this trip. When HOV routes are available they will see this display.[[File:HOV_ROUTES.PNG|center|250px|border]] The user then would select a route that designates how many passengers are required.[[File:New HOV symbol.PNG|center|250px|border]] '''Bottom line up front: separate road segment(s) for the HOV with transition zone to/from regular lanes using ramps'''  # Map the applicable regular lane.

Non-HOV travel is available on an adjacent parallel path (lane or segment). Waze will only route on this road if the person acknowledges that they meet the HOV requirement (and transponder if required) for this trip. Example is I-395 by the Pentagon (Arlington, VA). '''Bottom line up front: separate road segment(s) for separate parallel HOV''' Follow the general guidance above for [[#Limited enter/exit (transition zone) HOV|Limited enter/exit (transition zone) HOV]] lanes as applicable:# Map the applicable regular lane road segments# Map parallel road segments for HOV lanes # Add applicable entrance and exit ramps# HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below  {{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' Map if motorcycles are allowed by adding them as an allowed restriction. Note that until motorcycle is a supported vehicle type, the motorcycle user should just indicate that they meet the HOV requirement(s).}} ====Whole road HOV====All travel is HOV only on the road. Non-HOV travel is not available on an adjacent parallel path (lane or segment). Waze will only route on this road if the person acknowledges that they meet the HOV requirement (and transponder if required) for this trip. There are not very many implementations of this type of set up. Example is I-66 inside the beltway in Northern Virginia; morning rush hour traffic is HOV-2+ only for eastbound traffic. '''Bottom line up front: separate road segment(s) for whole road HOV''' # Map the applicable road segment(s) for the road# The road segments for a whole road HOV look the same as a road without HOV.# HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below  {{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' Map if motorcycles are allowed by adding them as an allowed restriction. Note that until motorcycle is a supported vehicle type, the motorcycle user should just indicate that they meet the HOV requirement(s).}}
===Entering HOV restrictions===
 {{mbox|type=important|text='''Warning''' There is a bug the will reverse the Toll free/Allowed/Prohibited restrictions if too many are selected and they are not all aligned A-B or B-A. You can select two segments and the restriction will be properly aligned even if A-B on one and B-A on the other. It is fairly obvious if editing one way segments since the restriction coloration will not show on the segment if the other direction has the restriction. If editing two way segments (i.e. reversible road segments) then it is recommended that each be reviewed so that you don't break the routing.}} {{mbox|type=important|text=Separate '''Note''' - '''ALL''' segments need to have the HOV/HOT/Express restrictions marked. This is required for the HOV algorithm to work. Do not just mark the entrance segment . Follow current guidance for mapping toll segments only where there is a toll booth, toll transponder, or other collection device. If there is any toll free travel then '''ALL''' segments need the toll free restriction. The HOV /HOT/Express/Bus/etc will be used for voice prompts in the app soon. It is best to have them all the same; make sure that none is not inadvertently selected since that will adversely affect routing.}} {{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' Restrictions for Toll free/Allowed/Prohibited are treated as AND conditions when comparing the separate lines on the first popup window. Within in a single restriction type on the second popup window, the various restrictions are treated as OR conditions. So saying that private vehicles with HOV-2+ and taxis are allowed will route either type of vehicle '''IF''' in the same restriction (on the second popup window). If they are entered as two separate restrictions on the first popup window then nothing will be routed since you have to simultaneously be both a private vehicle with HOV-2+ and a taxi; this is not possible.If something is an allowed restriction then onlythat type of condition(s) can pass on the road, all others are considered to be prohibitedDo not use conflicting restrictions - ex all vehicles with Sunpass are allowed but taxis are prohibited. A taxi can have a Sunpass and the algorithm is not set up to have a preference or hierarchy yet, so improper routing can happen.}} ====Enter/exit anywhere HOV====

====Enter/exit anywhere HOT/Express lanes====
This type of configuration only occurs at the start or finish of the HOT/Express lanes. No restriction is required.
Reason for not having dashed line separation in the middle of the HOT/Express lane segments is that there is no way of charging a toll to the non-HOV compliant vehicles.
