New Yorkers can use Google Maps to locate nearby bike shares, but now that feature is expanding to more cities and countries, including Toronto.
Starting July 17th, an update to Maps will bring bike share locations to the app in a total of 24 cities in 16 countries. Users can simply type in ‘bike share’ in Maps and see how many bikes are nearby.
Additionally, Google says Maps will even show if there’s an empty space near your destination to dock your bike.
Google partnered with Ito World to incorporate a global bike share data feed directly into Maps.
The feature will come to or is already available in Maps on iOS and Android in the following cities, with more to come at a later date:
- Los Angeles
- Mexico City
- New Taipei City
- New York City
- Rio de Janeiro
- San Francisco Bay Area
- São Paulo
My passion for tech started with my first iPod and has carried through smartphones and computers of all kinds. Android is my jam, but I get excited for anything cool that happens in tech. I also enjoy gaming, building my own computers and digging into how things work.
