walking mode button

Have you thought about a walking mode button.So if you have waze on you don't get false data that traffic is at a stand still when you are walking.
Many thanks Andrew warren

        I was in NYC last week and would have loved to have a walking mode to get around the city. I had to resort to google maps.

        The lack of a walking mode is the only reason I still have Google maps on my phone.

        NEED a walking route! I have to use other apps to walk or bike. What’s to keep more people like me from going to Google full time?

        Would love to be able to community network with walking hazards (I.e. rut in path, sidewalk closed, no lights, person stopped on walkway, etc...) for safety same as road hazards delivered for waze drivers.

        I agree, I would love it if Waze offered a walking route.

        I commute to/from the city via train every day, so I may have some calendar events that I will drive to and others that I will walk to. I need more granularity than a global setting to enable/disable "Planned drives reminders" provides.

        Earlier versions had walking and public transit directions. I don’t like it now. Adding those would not clutter things up. If you didn’t want to use them then you don’t have to.

        Walking mode would be great if you want to update map in your position. You have plenty of time then for correct URs.

        +1 Dzons - Use Google Maps for walking mode. Waze is for real-time traffic that obeys DRIVING rules. Keep it simple and uncluttered from unnecessary features.

        Why do you people need walking mode? Waze is for driving. If you need directions whilst walking use google maps.

        I’ve wanted to use walking mode often, after parking for my destination or just having to walk around a strange city. It would be great!

        Walking mode button please as I walk a lot and need it to get to destinations. Thank you

        Walking around Dublin yesterday, Waze directions to location brought us in the direction of one way traffic rather than shortest route. Please consider walking mode button. Thank you for a fantastic app!

        In London getting around between Tube Stations can be frustrating havin a walk mode on Waze would be really useful.

        I’m using a mobility scooter but waze only seem to do one for the roadways which would take me too long to get from A to B
