Took me to a ferry instead of bridge

Postby doctorade » Fri Mar 18, 2016 11:38 pm

Travelling from Toronto to montebello Quebec and Waze routed us to a ferry that was way out of our way. Had to then double back and go on regular gps through Ottawa. Added an extra 45 mins to our journey. Not happy

Sorry to hear.
I moved the post to Quebec forum, where we can help you with the issue locally.
Could you please send some specifics which Ferry Waze took you to? What was the issue with the Ferry? Was it closed or not existed?
I need the specific information to check what could possibly cause this.

Could be the Fassett/Lefaivre Ferry or the Thurso Ferry.

The Thurso ferry is closed during the winter, and doesn't operate 24/7. This doesn't seem to be set up in Waze right now (source).

I wasn't able to find much on the Fassett Ferry. It's apparently seasonal, and is replaced by an ice bridge in the winter. I'm not seeing any restrictions in Waze to reflect that either. I tried to find more information, but I always end up on the Cumberland ferry website when searching.

Thanks @phil-mtl.
Without feedback from @doctorade we are guessing, but in the meantime if you got some time you should apply the restrictions to the ferry with your source information.
If we don't have information on the ice bridge it should be closed for the winter.
