Google expands Lime bike and scooter support on Google Maps

Google has announced that several additional cities now have support for Lime bikes and scooters on Google Maps. Starting this week, those travelling around more than 80 cities worldwide will be able to take advantage of Lime’s service which Google positions as taking you “that last mile”.

With the feature, Google Maps lets you know if a Lime vehicle is available, how long it’ll take to reach it, a rough estimate of how much the service will cost, and the total journey time and ETA. The service appears under the public transport tab under the ‘Also Consider’ header along with Uber.

Outside of the United States, the service will be available in Brussels, Calgary, Christchurch, London, Lyon, Madrid, Malaga, Malmö, Marseille, Mexico City, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Pamplona, Paris, Poznan, Stockholm, Sydney, Tel Aviv, Vienna, Warsaw, Wellington, Wroclaw, and Zaragoza.

Within the U.S. you’ll be able to use the service in Arizona (Mesa, Scottsdale), Arkansas (Little Rock), California (Monterey, Mountain View, San Marcos, Santa Barbara), Colorado (Denver), Florida (Miami, Orlando), Georgia (Atlanta, Statesboro), Idaho (Boise), Indiana (Bloomington, South Bend), Kentucky (Louisville), Massachusetts (Arlington, Bedford, Belmont, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Milton, Needham, Newton, Revere, Waltham, Watertown, Winthrop), Michigan (Lansing), Nevada (Reno), Missouri (St. Louis), New Jersey (Keyport, Metuchen, Plainsfield), New York (Ithaca, Queens, Rockaways), North Carolina (Charlotte, Charlottesville, Greensboro, Greenville, Jacksonville, Raleigh/Durham), Ohio (Columbus, Oxford), Oklahoma (Oklahoma City, Tulsa), Rhode Island (Providence), Tennessee (Memphis, Nashville), Texas (Corpus Christi, Lubbock), Utah (Salt Lake City), Virginia (Harrisonburg), Washington (Tacoma), and Washington DC.

If you don’t see the option to use Lime products yet, you should see them become available throughout next week. The feature is available on Android and iOS, and it’ll rollout in even more cities soon.
