Google released a new feature for Maps in December last year which allowed users to locate Lime bikes and scooters within the app in 13 cities across the globe. It made it much easier to find a Lime vehicle and get going. The company has now announced that it’s expanding this integration. It will now be possible for Google Maps users to locate Lime bikes and scooters in more than 80 cities worldwide.
Google confirms on its official blog that starting this week, users will see nearby Lime scooters, pedal bikes, and e-bikes from the transit tab on Google Maps in more than 80 new cities across the globe.
When someone needs to travel a short distance, the proverbial last mile, Google Maps will be able to tell them if a Lime vehicle is available, how long it will take to walk to the vehicle, and how much the ride could cost in addition to the total journey time and ETA.
The full list of cities is available on Google’s blog. It includes dozens of locations across the United States in addition to major cities such as Paris, London, Brussels, Sydney, Mexico City, Madrid, and many more. This functionality is available in these cities through both the Android and iOS apps of Google Maps.
