As part of the HOV/Express Lane process, Waze computes a maximum of two separate road speeds per segment during the merge process. While the Waze editor interface allows the addition of multiple single-lane restrictions (e.g., HOV left lane, regular traffic center lane, and Bus right lane), the merge process does not support three different speeds on a single segment.

HOT or Express road segments that have Toll free and tolled in the same lane are treated as one speed measurement - even though two different groupings of vehicles are allowed in that lane.

Therefore, it is permissible to map Toll free and allowable (tolled) restrictions for the left lane and regular traffic on the other lanes is permissible in WME.

Speed measurements are gathered per lane, not per vehicle type—for example, an HOT or Express road segment allowing both toll free and tolled traffic in the same lane gathers only one set of average speed data.

Segment speed tracking

As part of the HOV/Express Lane process, Waze computes a maximum of two separate road speeds per segment during the merge process. While the Waze editor interface allows the addition of multiple single-lane restrictions (e.g., HOV left lane, regular traffic center lane, and Bus right lane), the merge process does not support three different speeds on a single segment. Thus, please do not add more than one single-lane restriction on any segment.

Speed measurements are gathered per lane, not per vehicle type—for example, an HOT or Express road segment allowing both toll free and tolled traffic in the same lane gathers only one set of average speed data. This makes sense, as vehicles in the lane are traveling together as a single pack. In other words, the complexity of restrictions in a single lane does not matter—as long as only one single-lane restriction is used, speed data will be collected properly.
