Google today announced its partnership with Lime to display nearby Lime scooters, pedal bikes and e-bikes in Google Maps. In Auckland, Austin, Baltimore, Brisbane (AU), Dallas, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, San Antonio, San Jose, Scottsdale and Seattle, Lime’s transportation options will be displayed insider Google Maps.
Here’s how it works:
- Simply navigate to your destination and tap on the transit icon to see your nearby options.
- If a Lime vehicle is available, you’ll see how long it’ll take to walk to the vehicle, an estimate of how much your ride could cost, and your total journey time and ETA.
- Tapping on the Lime card will take you right to the Lime app, where you can see the exact location of the vehicle and easily unlock it.
- If you don’t have the Lime app installed, you’ll be taken to the App or Play store.
This new Lime scooters and bikes integration is now available on Google Maps on Android and iOS in supported cities.
