==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 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 deviceand if no vehicles travel as toll free on that segment. See [[User:Subs5/Toll_road|Toll road]] for additional information.
===Nearby HOV attribute===[[FileThere are two ways to mark toll:Nearby_HOV.PNG|right|250px|border]]*The Nearby HOV # Toll attribute in bottom left corner of the first TBSR popup window# Toll free restriction is a check box that is used for designating roads that are close to the HOV lane so that Waze’s algorithm can differentiate between the varying speedsenabled in second TBSR popup window

===How to map HOV lane segments===
====Dashed line separation 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) separations at any time. Usually the lane with will be noted marked with the white triangle diamond painted on the road way 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]]            
'''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 Nearby 'Next to carpool/HOV /bus lane' attribute.}}
# Map the applicable road segment(s) for the road
# HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' even Map if HOV lanes allow motorcycles, are allowed by adding them as an allowed restriction. Note that does not need to be mapped since until motorcycle is not an allowed a supported vehicle type for Waze routing. The , the motorcycle user should just indicate that they meet the HOV requirement(s).}}
====SolidLimited enter/double solid line exit (transition zone) HOV====*Separated by solid or double solid lines from the normal lanes with periodic transition zones. [[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). Waze will only route on this road if :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 person acknowledges that they meet highway entrances and exits are accessible to the HOV requirement for lane, then there is no functional difference to the routing that these lanes have restricted access. You should also map this trip. Example type of HOV using simple lane restrictions on a single set of segments as is '''need location done with this set up'''[[#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 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 with '''to [Road name/Route number] HOV''' coming from the regular lanes to the start of the transition zone (Prompts user to enter the HOV lane). **:Ramp should be about 6have an approximate angle of 20-7 m long 30° and flow traffic into the HOV lane at the start of the transition zone (start of dashed white lines).* Add *:The ramp should have no name, unless there is a ramp [[BGS]] with '''to Return to [Road additional information other than the road name/Route number] Regular Lanes''' , 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).

Ramp should originate at the endt of the transition zone and be about 6-7 m long. # * 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''' even if HOV lanes allow If motorcyclesare allowed, map the rule by adding them as an allowed restriction. Note that does not need to be mapped since until motorcycle is not an allowed a supported vehicle type for Waze routing. The , 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 transducer 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
# HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' even Map if HOV lanes allow motorcycles, are allowed by adding them as an allowed restriction. Note that does not need to be mapped since until motorcycle is not an allowed a supported vehicle type for Waze routing. The , 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 transducer 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'''
# HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below
 {{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' even Map if HOV lanes allow motorcycles, are allowed by adding them as an allowed restriction. Note that does not need to be mapped since until motorcycle is not an allowed a supported vehicle type for Waze routing. The , the motorcycle user should just indicate that they meet the HOV requirement(s).}}
===Entering HOV restrictions===
====Separate segment HOV only====
To mark a segment for HOV use including the required number of passengers:
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' The toll attribute check box for the toll attribute moved to the first pop up for TBSRs from under the segment's road type.}}
#Select '''Add restrictions''' (Time Based Segment Restrictions) on the left panel when the segment is selected
#Check the toll road attribute in the bottom left corner of the popup box [[File:Toll_attribute_box_checked.PNG‎|center|500px|border]]
#Select '''Entire segment''' in the '''Applies to''' section [[File:Applies_to_box.PNG|center|500px|border]]
#Select '''HOV''' in the '''Applies to''' section
#Select appropriate '''Days''', '''Hours''', and '''Every week''' [Note every week can be a date range but probably not used for HOV]
#'''Driving is _____ for'''
##Select '''toll free''' if free for HOV vehicles [[File:Driving_is_allowed_for.PNG|center|500px|border]]
##Select '''allowed for''' if there is a charge even for HOV vehicles
##Select '''prohibited''' if there are times when the road is closed to all traffic, ex. reversible lane [[File:Vehicle_type_num_subscr.PNG|center|500px|border]]
#Select '''Num passengers''' by clicking the '''+''' on the green add restriction banner and a drop down menu will appear

##Select number of passengers required by clicking the '''At least 2 passengers''' and a drop down menu will appear with selections for '''At least 3 (4) passengers'''
#HOV lane only part of the day/Open to all rest/part of day/Reversible lane [[File:Driving_prohibited.PNG|center|500px|border]]
##Make sure one period is added for the segment then add additional restrictions till all appropriate times are added for one direction
##Add the appropriate time and restrictions for the opposite direction on reversible segments
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' be sure to add the '''Driving is Prohibited''' period(s) if a reversible lane does not allow traffic to prevent misrouting.}}
 
====Separate segment HOT/Express Lanes (HOV or toll allowed)====
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.
 
For each segment that is HOT/Express Lane
*Set up the HOV restrictions following the instructions for HOV above [Note do we want to link to above or repeat steps a drop down?]
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' The toll attribute check box for the toll attribute moved to the first pop up for TBSRs from under the segment's road type.}}
#Select '''Add restrictions''' (Time Based Segment Restrictions) on the left panel when the segment is selected
#Check the toll road attribute in the bottom left corner of the popup box [[File:Toll_attribute_box_checked.PNG‎|center|500px|border]]
#Set up the applicable segment for toll road by selecting the applicable toll transponder(s)
#Select '''Add restrictions''' (Time Based Segment Restrictions) on the left panel when the segment is selected
##Select '''Entire segment''' in the '''Applies to''' section if all lanes are the same for cash, transponder, or combination
##Select '''Left lane / Center lane / Right lane''' in the '''Applies to''' section if some lanes are transponder only
##Select '''Left lane / Center lane / Right lane''' in the '''Applies to''' section if all lanes are combination cash and transponder

#Select applicable transponder company by clicking the '''Sunpass''' and a drop down menu will appear with all available companies
{{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= '''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 only that type of condition(s) can pass on the road, all others are considered to be prohibited
Do 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.}}
