I see no reference to pedestrians or bicycles in Noam's post about the Google acquisition here: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 11#p466608

I can tell you that neither pedestrians nor bicycles are currently being tested as an option.

It wasn't that post by them. I'll look for it. It's the same post that mentioned adding speed limits. And yes, I know it's not in beta and will likely be a long way down the road. Just saying that they said it was at least planned at some point.

EDIT:
Ok, it took a little work, but I found it. Here is the post from shirlig that comments on adding walking and biking to Waze. See list item #3. Now, this is obviously just a goal and may or may not ever be fully added. It's too soon to know, but it is at least on the table. As far as making it less work to add all of the walking and biking areas, I think Waze should consider adding checkboxes to street segments allowing you to mark a check if a sidewalk is present as well as mark a check if bicycles are allowed. That would save having to add a ton of sidewalks and bike lanes to the map that follow the roads. In short, it would save a LOT of work. Then, all that is left is adding paths that do not follow roads. Just a thought. And I think we'll find that there are a lot of walking and biking enthusiasts who would put in the time to get their trails mapped in Waze even if they have no interest in mapping roads. And in some countries or some areas of countries, you may even find more editors for biking/walking than for driving. And though it's a long way down the road, I'd also suggest that Waze separate walking/biking trails from the road layer so that editors can hide roads and still see the trails or hide trails and still see the roads. It will make it far easier to edit without needing to see everything at once.

I figured it wasn't very concrete.
They will not go there. Other apps are way better on the pedestrian and bicycle thing. That boat has left and it's to late to jump on.

Country: Israel.

We own a marketing business. We do have trucks that uses waze. We sure would like to see version for trucks.

Our local transportation rules have restrictions for:

1. Some roads are not for trucks.
2. Some roads allow trucks at certien hours.

Thank you!

Please read the info in this thread - Time-based & Vehicle-type restrictions are currently being tested in the beta editor. The time-based restrictions are also being tested in the app (if we restrict something in the beta editor, the routing engine uses that info after the next tile build), the vehicle type restrictions have not yet made it to the app-testing phase yet (the app needs an update so you can select your vehicle type before this can start to happen).

Invite only. I've posted in other threads, even in the last week, about some criteria Waze may use to invite editors to be part of the beta testing.

In Brazil we have bus and taxi exclusive lanes. And we have also some lanes restricted for trucks over a certain size/weight. That would be nice to have. A pedestrian choice would also be nice, since we already have the option to create "pedestrian boardwalk" roads in the editor.
