Google is adding a new transit option to Maps: Lime scooters and bikes. Maps will now offer the option to direct you toward the nearest shared vehicle and factor that into your travel time.
Similar to how Uber and Lyft are integrated
Maps already offers a similar integration for services like Uber and Lyft. Google will give you Lime as an option, along with the location and estimated price, and forward you over to the Lime app to actually find and book the scooter or bike in question.
Google is rolling out the Lime integration in 13 cities around the world to start: Auckland, New Zealand; Austin, Texas; Baltimore, Maryland; Brisbane, Australia; Dallas, Texas; Indianapolis, Indiana; Los Angeles, California; San Diego, California; Oakland, California; San Antonio, Texas; San Jose, California; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Seattle, Washington. The feature should be available on Google Maps on Android and iOS today.
