Google Maps now lets you pair transit directions with biking and ridesharing options

28 August 2019 0

Google is adding new biking and ridesharing options to the transit directions so that you could choose to use them while traveling from your A to B locations. The aim is to fulfill the needs that occur when one has to take multiple modes of transportation to reach their destination.

Google exemplifies this that suppose you’re going from your friend’s house to your place via station but the station is a bit too away from where you’re that you can’t reach on foot. So, you can look for a ridesharing vehicle to get to the station rather than going there on foot. So, the new modes will let you cover the short distances quickly.

You just need to enter the destination in the search box, which in case of this example is the station. And tap on Directions and then on the transit tab. From there, you’ll automatically see routes that feature ridesharing and cycling/biking options paired with transit directions.

Furthermore, if you’re interested in taking a ride-sharing vehicle, you’ll see more information about your trip, like how much the ride will cost or how long the wait it, if there’s traffic on your ride, or when the train will depart. Similarly, if biking suits you, Google Maps will give everything you would require to know about your transit. You can also choose your favorite rideshare provider and other available ride options like a pool of economy.

Google announced that the transit directions with biking and ridesharing will start rolling out in the coming weeks on Android and iOS in 30 countries around the globe.
