We have the same situation (HOV/HOT lanes) in Houston on I-10, and they are adding it to US-290. We have HOV lanes all over town, most of which reverse direction depending on the time of day.
There are also a few major side roads that have center lanes that reverse direction depending on traffic and/or time of day. (yes, I know, this one should go on the Map forum, I'm just saying it would be nice to be able to warn people coming from the correct direction of hazards in that lane.)
Waze is NOT for use on bicycles. You are contributing false data to the maps & since Waze is designed to route you from Point A to Point B as fast as possible, the app will route you on higher value roads (those that can support more traffic at higher speeds, etc).ictag wrote:I find waze especially useful when I cycle somewhere instead of driving.

But, it probably wreaks havoc with the waze maps (especially in towns and cities) so a transport-type button might lead to less map errors.
The HOV Lanes in Hartford, CT (I-91 north of the city & I-84 east of the city) are not open to single occupant cars at any time.squeedps wrote:Also, I used to live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. They had an HOV lane on the north and south side of the bay that was designated as HOV during high traffic times of the day only (and day of the week, M-F). During all the rest of the time anyone, single passenger or not, could use the lane without penalty. This was also the case north of Hartford, CT on I-91.
