{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' only private vehicle and taxi are currently available selections in the app {{as of|2017|11|lc=yes}}; you can add other allowed vehicle types motorcycles, bus, public transportation, electric vehicle, etc for future compatibility. Waze Staff states that prohibited rules (eg for vehicle types) should not be added as a restriction if they may conflict with an allowed rule until we are notified that the programming is changed to handle such conflicts.}}
