Waze Is the First GPS App to Support Carpool Lanes and Motorcycle-specific Directions
Waze started rolling out three new features to its iOS and Android app Wednesday, the most noticeable of which is new support for high occupancy vehicles or carpool lanes. Now, if you’re carpooling or have a vehicle with a special permit, Waze will offer travel times and directions for the HOV lanes as well, making it the first navigation tool to offer the opportunity.
In addition to the new HOV navigation, Waze also added a hands-free feature that allows you to interact with Waze by saying “OK Waze”
The third and final new feature is the addition of motorcycles as a vehicle type, allowing riders to get new motorcycle-specific directions.
