Google Maps Adding New Rider Options

Posted on March 16, 2016

Google recently announced its navigation app, Google Maps, which will be adding a new car services tab as a complement to its walking, driving and public transportation directions. It will show fares and riding options from a number of providers, in addition to Uber.

New partners include 99Taxis in Brazil, Ola Cabs in India, Hailo in the U.K. and Spain, mytaxi in Germany and Spain and Gett in the U.K. They will sit alongside listings from Uber, which was the first service to be integrated into the Google Maps app globally in 2014.

Google says the new integrations will be rolling out first on Android, and “coming very soon” to iOS.
