Google Maps all set to help in short commutes

Google is rolling out a new Maps feature for users with short daily commute where they will be able to access nearby ‘last-mile’ services in combination with transit options.

The feature will work alongside other ridesharing platforms such as Lyft and Uber while bike-riders can also avail the facility.

To access the feature, simply type your destination in the search bar and tap on the transit tab. The app will return a variety of ridesharing and cycling options along with transit directions.

Google Maps will also highlight detailed information for ridesharing users related to the trips, including how much each way would cost, the traffic conditions, and the wait-period for car, bus, and train service. Users can also modify this feature and highlight their favorite service such as Lyft and Uber’s pool and economy modules.


Similarly, the users utilizing the biking part of the feature can highlight their preferred biking trails to find out how long it will take them to reach their destination – through bikes.

The feature is expected to start rolling out in over 30 countries in the coming weeks.
