Say what side of the road the desination is on.
When getting close to your destination tell the user what side of road it is on, so they can be in the correct lane or start looking on the side for it.
Great news! The feature where it says on which side of the road is your destination is now available in Waze. Install the latest app version to check it out.
I like waze A LOT, but google has this feature which saves a lot of time in u-turns and fighting traffic
Maps has it, major deficiency in waze

We definitely need this!
I came to make this suggestion too. This will be very helpful and should take no effort to include
When I put my phone in my dash mount, it holds the phone horizonal.The top bar displays my directions to next turn, and when a notification comes up under this bar, it is half covered up by the top bar.When you have the phone horizonal, it seems better to post these notifcations on the right or left quarter of the screen, since there is extra room when phone is horizonal.Now maybe it is the size of the font I have my phone set to display-which is large because I need it to be-but still displays on the screen should adjust for font size.

100% agree. The app already shows the checkered flag on the map, but it's hard to see that right away. The red pin would be very helpful.

Uber and Lyft drivers need to pickup and drop off passenger on the correct side of the road
Yes! How is this still not a feature? It's pretty important information when choosing which lane to drive in, once you make the turn onto the final road.

When you finally reach your destination Waze should state that your destination is on the left or right side of the street.
Edward Hoffmeister commented
Does the destination address being even or odd work in your area? ( Example: on North/south roads here even addresses are on West side of street.)
When on the last leg of a route, it is impossible to tell which side of the road the destination is on until it comes into view on the map display. The destination marker showing that you're on the last leg should indicate the side of the road the destination is on.

Definitely!! After arrival we would love the app to show the address
When you are arriving at your destination Waze just announces you are arriving but fails to identify, which side of the street it will be on and addresses are not always visible. This is very important because I often find myself on the opposite side of the street and have to go down the road and turn around. In heavy traffic this can add a significant amount of time to your travel.

When you arrive at your destination Waze just states you have arrived but does not state if the location is on the left or the right side
This app is good but there are tow important things need to add or fix.
1. It's doesn't tell you right or left when you get your destination. And 2. When turns are more than one it's should be able to tell you the 1st, 2nd or 3rd. You may not see these important if you're not using it at a busy city.

Currently there are only two routing options "shortest" and "fastest". A third option could be "destination/stop on passenger side".
As a school bus driver we don't like to have our students cross the road when possible, it's unsafe. When dropping people it's usually faster to take a slightly longer route vs getting out of a vehicle and escorting them over, it's also easier on traffic. Even if it's not faster it's definitely more preferred. Also many times we can't make a U-turns very easily or safely.
The adresses are already there, only a routing algorithm is needed. The idea is simple for a two way street's that aren't dead ends. If a destination is on a cul de sac or dead end rather then ending the routing early as a left hand side, add a further u-turn instruction so it would end as a right hand side. The exemption would be one way streets.
This option not only works for school bus drivers but could work well for anyone who drops passengers off (uber,lyft, etc) and anyone who doesn't want to cross the street (parents with children, elderly).

Yes, please add this feature!!!
Michael Poutre commented
I feel this would be a great feature, one of the main things I miss from Google Maps.
Lucia Tringali commented
Change the (approaching?) final destination icon that appears at the end of your route to show whether the destination is on the left or the right side of the street by using the red pin within the icon.
I agree. Would be great to know which side your location is on when you arrive.
