Better carpool express lane data
sometimes the navigation directs the driver to express/carpool lanes, but if your a single driver they are not available options. I think there should be a setting or drive option to set how any people are in the vehicle so the navigation can readily use carpool/express lanes to drivers advantage to bypass traffic and make the drive faster. Since carpool and express lanes sometimes have operating times based on the time of day it would be helpful
Thank you for your suggestion! As you may know, Waze offers HOV routing for taxis. To change your vehicle type go to Settings > Vehicle type. There are currently no plans to add more HOV options.

Having better geographic information about carpool lanes would be a big help. Entrances and exits, dedicated on ramps, local or express, for example CA91 is express through Corona; if you don't know that you stay in the carpool lane only to find that you have to go 2-3 miles out of the way.
I want to be able to choose between carpool lanes and regular fwy. lanes before I start my trip.
Exactly, I received a violation because WAZE directed me onto a carpool lane freeway entrance only. It was a quick left and quick right by USC off of Flower and 39th.
