The Waze navigation app is getting a new feature that will calculate toll pricing for your route. The company says that determining toll pricing had been one of its most requested features.

According to Moriah Royz, a project manager at Waze, the app will now show drivers three different route options: the fastest, including toll prices; a free option, for the fastest route; as well as a possible third option.

Building the tool wasn't as simple as added speed limits to highways or roads. There are over 5,000 toll roads in the U.S. plus tolled bridges and tunnels. Some of the tolls are dynamic and have different prices depending on the time of day, direction, vehicle type, occupants, and more.

Royz credits Waze's large team of volunteers who help keep the streets up to date.

"They actually mapped over 400,000 toll roads, bridges, tunnels, and ferries around the US and Canada over the past couple of months," she said in an interview.

"Time is money. Until now, Waze was trying to save you time by eliminating your time in traffic, now we also try to save our users as much money as possible."

You can download Waze Navigation & Live Traffic from the App Store for free.
