On 25 November 2019, Waze announced the launch of its Toll Prices feature in Malaysia. As one of the most requested features by the community, Toll Prices will enable users to view and compare toll prices when they are driving along tolled routes.
The Toll Prices feature will help drivers make better planning decisions by giving them visibility of prices ahead of time, thus enabling them to compare prices of different routes and estimated arrival times according to their preferred route option.
The feature is only possible due to the work of Waze’s volunteer community of over 30,000 monthly active map editors. There were six volunteers from the Malaysia Waze community that played a part in this latest feature; where they helped collect and input toll price information.
“We are delighted to bring Toll Prices to Malaysia. Thanks to the phenomenal efforts of our volunteer community, we’ve been able to make one of the most requested features on Waze a reality. Until now, Waze was trying to reduce your time spent in traffic – now we’re also helping our users save as much money as possible by giving them the absolute best choice of routes, based both on ETA and potential costs of tolls along the way. We look forward to continue working with our community to make this feature available in all markets,” said Moriah Royz, Waze product manager.
The Toll Prices feature is compatible with high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) lanes, and will be automatically enabled where users will see a Toll tag on the route if it includes a toll road. Drivers with a toll pass can also select this in the Waze app, which will be taken into account when routes are being generated.
