The information on these pages is adapted to the situation and working of Waze in the countries of the BeNeLux. At the top of the page you can select the language of your choice.

In the Benelux railroads, metros and tramways are mapped with the Railroad road type to provide drivers with visual orientation. Tracks that are embedded in a road surface or a median strip should not be mapped.

Railroads should be mapped using the following characteristics.

  • Uninterrupted. No junction nodes at city borders.
  • No connection to segments of any other road type besides Railroad!
  • 'None' for City name. This is because there are no city borders on railroad segments.
  • Street name: 'Spoorlijn' or 'Voie ferrée' (depending on the regional language) or 'Tram'.

For other means of public transport there are other guidelines.
