==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 cornerof 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 deviceand if no vehicles travel as toll free on that segment. See [[User:Subs5/Toll_road|Toll road]] for additional information.  There are two ways to mark toll:# Toll attribute in bottom left corner of the first TBSR popup window# Toll free restriction is enabled in second TBSR popup window {{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' if there is not a restriction then {{button|format=bold|bgcolor=#FCE5A1|Add restrictions}} is shown; if there are TBSRs, then {{button|format=bold|bgcolor=#FCE5A1|Edit restrictions (#)}} is shown.}} * Once a segment is marked as having the toll attribute on the first TBSR popup window, the toll attribute is displayed under the road segment name. 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
#Whole road is Dashed line separation HOV and there is no parallel path for non-HOV drivers#HOV lane that is part of the road and can be accessed or exited at any time (dashed line separation)#Solid/double solid line HOV - HOV lane that is part of the road but can only be accessed or exited at certain places (double solid line or flexible barriers)#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 (separate ; only accessed from ramp segments other than initial entrance or final exit.# Whole road HOV - HOV is entire road and there is no parallel segment)path for non-HOV drivers
====Whole road HOV====
[[File:Restriction_first_popup.PNG‎|right|250px|border]] All travel is HOV only on the road. Non-HOV travel is not available adjacent parallel path (lane or segment). Waze will only route on this road if the person acknowledges that they meet the HOV requirement (and transducer if required) for this trip. Example is I-66 inside the beltway in Northern Virginia; morning rush hour traffic is HOV-2+ only for eastbound traffic.

Usually the lane will be marked with the white diamond painted on the roadway and have regulatory signs on the popup screen shoulder.

'''Note do we have to add motorcycle?''' currently not a vehicle type, can we assume that they are to say they meet the HOV rule?
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' even if HOV lanes allow motorcycles, that allowance does not need to be mapped since motorcycle is not an allowed vehicle type for Waze routing. The motorcycle user should just indicate that they meet the HOV requirement(s).}}
====Dashed line separation====
*HOV lanes that can be accessed or exited the entire time since drivers can cross the dashed line separations at any time. Usually the lane with be noted with the white triangle painted on the road way and have regulatory signs on the shoulder.
[[File:HOV_Diamond_and_sign.PNG‎|left|200px|border]][[File:I66_E_outside_beltway.PNG‎|right|200px|border]]
'''Bottom line up front - The HOV lane is mapped on the same segment(s) as the regular lanes.'''
{{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 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).}}
====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 lanes with periodic transition zones. Non-HOV travel is available on an adjacent parallel path (lane or segment).
:Note for areas where it is legal to cross the single solid white line refer to [[#Enter/exit anywhere HOV|Enter/exit anywhere HOV section]] above.
:If all of the highway entrances and exits are accessible to the HOV lane, then there is no functional difference to the routing that these lanes have restricted access. You should also map this type of HOV using simple lane restrictions on a single set of segments as is done with [[#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 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 road segments
# Map parallel road segments for HOV lanes that have transition zones with the regular lanes
# HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below
# Add ramps for the transition zone as follows:
* Add a set of entrance/exit ramps to make a V at the entrance to HOV lanes
** Add a ramp coming from the regular lanes to the start of the transition zone (Prompts user to enter the HOV lane).
**:Ramp should have an approximate angle of 20-30° and flow traffic into the HOV lane at the start of the transition zone (start of dashed white lines).
**:The ramp should have no name, unless there is a [[BGS]] with additional information other than the road name, restrictions, and transponders.
** Add an exit transition ramp from the start of the transition zone (Prompts user to exit HOV lane either for upcoming exit or if traffic is faster in regular lanes).
**:The ramp should originate at the start of the transition zone and have an approximate angle of 20-30° leading back onto the regular lanes.
**:The ramp should have no name, unless there is a [[BGS]] with additional information other than the road name, restrictions, and transponders.
* Only if the zone is over 0.5 miles ''(805 meters)'' long; Add another set of entrance/exit ramps following the above style to make a V at the end of the transition zone.
** Add a ramp from the regular lanes flowing into the HOV lane at the end of the transition zone (Prompts user to enter the HOV lane).
** Add a ramp from the HOV lane at the end of the transition zone, flowing into the regular lanes (Prompts user to exit HOV lane either for upcoming exit or if traffic is faster in regular lanes).
* For a very long transition zone, other set(s) of entrance/exit ramps to make a V can be added every 0.5 miles/xxxx meters
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' If motorcycles are allowed, map the rule 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).}}
====Separate parallel segment HOV====
HOV only on the separate road segment; separated by a physical distance from the normal lanes (ex. land, curbs, shoulders), a concrete barrier, or a flexible barrier from the normal lanes. 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).}}
Bottom line up front ====Whole road HOV====All travel is HOV only on the road. Non-The HOV travel is not available on an adjacent parallel path (lane is mapped or segment). Waze will only route on this road if the same segment as person acknowledges that they meet the HOV requirement (and transponder if required) for this trip.

====Separated Entering HOV lanerestrictions====*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 {{mbox|type=important|text= '''Warning''' There is a bug the separationswill 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= '''Mapping separated laneNote''' - '''ALL''' segments need to have the HOV/HOT/Express restrictions marked. This is required for the HOV algorithm to work.

If there is any toll free travel then '''ALL''' segments need the toll free restriction. The separate lane should HOV/HOT/Express/Bus/etc will be mapped as a normal parallel segment used for voice prompts in the app soon. It is best to have them all the same; make sure that none is distinct from the normal roadnot inadvertently selected since that will adversely affect routing.}}
{{mbox|type=important|text===Dashed line separation====*Dashed line separations '''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 transition areas where treated as OR conditions.

Normally the HOV vehicle is allowed to use the lane for free while other vehicles have to pay a toll. The toll rate can be variable with surge pricing to control the number of vehicles that are not HOV on the road. Therefore this is setting up '''or''' statements. A vehicle can use the road for free if meeting the HOV requirements ''or'' the vehicle has to pay a toll.
=====Where to mark toll free / toll segments=====
# Mark a road segment with a toll free restriction along the entire path of toll free travel; this is required for it to work properly
# Marking a segment as toll free makes the segment act as a toll for all other users (even though toll attribute is not checked)
# Do not mark the toll attribute; which would prohibit adding a toll free restriction
# If the HOV has to pay a toll then only select the toll attribute on the segments with a toll booth or transponder; other segments are not marked.

====Whole road HOV====
[[File:Restriction_first_popup.PNG‎|right|250px|border]] All travel is HOV only on the road. Non-HOV travel is not available adjacent parallel path (lane or segment). Waze will only route on this road if the person acknowledges that they meet the HOV requirement (and transducer if required) for this trip. Example is I-66 inside the beltway in Northern Virginia; morning rush hour traffic is HOV-2+ only for eastbound traffic.
