I use waze with my scooter and in my hometown, Milan, scooters and motorbikes are allowed to run on most bus and taxi lane. It would be great if waze will recognize bus and taxi lanes allowed to other categories of vehicles.
You will create fake traffic jams and removed the correct ones.
I'm not in a position to comment on anything other than the bare basics. But Waze works on restrictions, not allowances. So there is no "Taxi Lane". There is a lane that taxis are allowed to use. If Scooters or motorbikes are allowed to use them then they are not restricted.
I *SUSPECT* that the travel times will be calculated separately from taxis. So I think that the "scooter in a taxi lane" will only create traffic jams for other scooters who wish to use that taxi lane. And if that scooter can't get through, this is a good thing, In My Not so-humble Opinion.
I'm not in that part of the world, and cannot comment on how things will work in real-life versus how we model it.
An example: Local to me are some streets that are one way only during certain hours on school days. So we can program Waze to accept those limitations Monday through Friday, between certain dates. (School start to end.) It's not as good as knowing the entire schedule of the school for things like days off, but it's better than where we are now. So we go with the general rule, rather than the specific rule.
I suspect the same type of logic will apply here. Once again, the same restrictions apply. I can only speak to what I know first-hand. I am not a guru and cannot predict things in the future... Waze time for "soon" doesn't always correspond to real-life "soon". But I haven't even been involved with Waze long enough to know that first-hand...
