High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV)

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 included, so please take your time and read it through the entire article prior to editing. If you have questions, then please reach out to your State Manager or Regional Coordinator and we’ll get you some help.

Definitions

HOV

HOV – High Occupancy Vehicle. Has more than one person in the vehicle. It is often posted with a number after the acronym; HOV-2 or HOV2+. The number specifies the number of people to meet the HOV requirements; ex. HOV-3 means that three or more people need to be in the vehicle.

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 broadcasts that the car meets the requirements so that a toll is not charged.

Express Lanes

Express Lanes – There are two main types of Express Lanes on the interstate system. They can either be HOT lanes or lanes that have limited exits. This wiki section will just deal with the HOT type of Express Lanes and the segments should follow the guidance for HOT below.

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.

Toll attribute

Toll attribute box checked.PNG

The toll attribute has moved from under the road segment name to the first page of a Time Based Segment Restriction (TBSR). It is in the bottom left corner of the first TBSR popup window. Mark a road segment as a toll segment only if the segment has a toll booth, transponder reader, or other tolling device. See Toll road for additional information.

Nearby HOV attribute

Nearby HOV.PNG
  • The Nearby HOV attribute 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 speeds
  • Location the Nearby HOV attribute is under the road type selection when a segment is selected
  • DO NOT SELECT this attribute on the actual HOV road segments. Especially for road segments that have regular and HOV lanes on the same segment. (i.e. the segment has an HOV lane that is separated by dashed line.)
  • Ensure the Nearby HOV attribute is selected on all parallel road segments going the same direction as the HOV traffic that are within (XXX feet) of an HOV segment.
Note for reversible HOV lanes there may be road segments on both sides of the HOV lane that require the Nearby HOV attribute to be checked.

How to map HOV lane segments

There are four types of HOV lanes

  1. Dashed line separation HOV - HOV lane that is part of the road and can be accessed or exited at any time
  2. Solid/double solid line HOV - HOV lane that is part of the road but can only be accessed or exited at certain places
  3. 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.
  4. Whole road HOV - HOV is entire road and there is no parallel path for non-HOV drivers


Dashed line separation HOV

  • 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.

I66 E outside beltway.PNG









Bottom line up front - The HOV lane is mapped on the same segment(s) as the regular lanes.

Remember DO NOT mark any road segment(s) with the Nearby HOV attribute.
  1. Map the applicable road segment(s) for the road
  2. The road segments for a dashed line separation HOV look the same as a road without HOV.
  3. HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below
Note even if HOV lanes allow motorcycles, that 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).

Solid/double solid line HOV

  • Separated by solid or double solid lines from the normal lanes with periodic transition zones.
    US-50 E double solid line.PNG
    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 for this trip. Example is need location with this set up.


Bottom line up front: separate road segment(s) for the HOV with transition zone to/from regular lanes using ramps


  1. Map the applicable regular lane road segments
  2. Map parallel road segments for HOV lanes that have transition zones with the regular lanes
  3. HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below
  4. 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 6-7 m long and flow traffic into the HOV lane at the start of the transition zone (start of dashed white lines).
    • Add a ramp with to Return to [Road name/Route number] Regular Lanes (Prompts user to exit HOV lane either for upcoming exit or if traffic is faster in regular lanes). Ramp should originate at the start of the transition zone and be about 6-7 m long.
  • Add another set of entrance/exit ramps to make a V at the end of the transition zone, if the zone is over 0.5 miles/xxxx meters long
    • Add a ramp with to [Road name/Route number] HOV coming from the regular lanes to the end of the transition zone (Prompts user to enter the HOV lane). Ramp should be about 6-7 m long and flow traffic into the HOV lane at the end of the transition zone (start of solid white lines).
    • Add a ramp with to Return to [Road name/Route number] Regular Lanes (Prompts user to exit HOV lane either for upcoming exit or if traffic is faster in regular lanes). Ramp should originate at the end 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
Note even if HOV lanes allow motorcycles, that 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).

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 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

  1. Map the applicable regular lane road segments
  2. Map parallel road segments for HOV lanes
  3. Add applicable entrance and exit ramps
  4. HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below
Note even if HOV lanes allow motorcycles, that 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).

Whole road HOV

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. 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

  1. Map the applicable road segment(s) for the road
  2. The road segments for a whole road HOV look the same as a road without HOV.
  3. HOV restrictions are added per the restrictions section below
Note even if HOV lanes allow motorcycles, that 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).

Entering HOT/Express lane restrictions (HOV or toll allowed)

Dashed line separation 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.

Solid/double solid line / Separate parallel segment / Whole road HOT/Express lane

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 segments
  1. Mark a road segment with the toll attribute only if the segment has a toll booth, transponder reader, or other tolling device
  2. Non-toll collecting segments should not have the attribute checked
  3. Normally one does not mark the toll attribute for the final toll booth, transponder reader, or other tolling device. Mark this segment if it is the only segment marked for at least one route on the toll road.
Note Waze assigns a large penalty for each road segment marked with a toll restriction if a user has avoid toll roads selected. Marking each toll booth/transponder for segment helps to route the user off at the nearest exit if the user has selected avoid tolls but allows them to take a short toll road if only reasonable route.
Adding HOT/Express lane restrictions

[Note do we want to link to above or repeat steps a drop down?] Validate if all segments need to be marked or just the ones marked with toll attribute

  1. Select Add restrictions (Time Based Segment Restrictions) on the left panel when the segment is selected
  2. If applicable, check the toll road attribute in the bottom left corner of the popup box
    Toll attribute box checked.PNG

      • b) Add a ramp with to Return to [Road name/Route number] Regular Lanes (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.
      1. 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

Separate Parallel 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 if required) for this trip. Example is I-395 by the Pentagon (Arlington, VA).
