Google Maps for Android and iPhone gets Lime integration

The days of simply walking, taking the bus, or hailing a taxi to get around a city is quickly becoming unfashionable. Instead, small electric vehicles -- such as scooters and bicycles -- are being used to go from place to place. While some people own their own e-bikes or e-scooters, many just rent them instead.

Yes, rent. If you aren't familiar, there is a huge trend right now where popular cities are littered with e-scooters, pedal bicycles, and e-bikes from companies like Bird, Citi Bike, and Lime. When you tire of walking, you just hop on the vehicle and use it as needed-- for an affordable price.

Google Maps is a great service for getting directions for traditional means of transportation. Not only does it help with navigating by car, walking, or biking, but it can offer mass-transit a*sistance too. Today, however, Google Maps gains yet another new feature that will surely delight millennials -- integration with Lime on both Android and iOS.


"Today, we're teaming up with Lime to help you find a better way to travel these short distances. In 13 cities around the world, you'll now be able to see nearby Lime scooters, pedal bikes and e-bikes as a transportation option right from Google Maps. Simply navigate to your destination and tap on the transit icon to see your nearby options," says Vishal DuttaProduct Manager, Google Maps.

Dutta further says, "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."

Seems like a fad, but the integration may prove otherwise.

Yeah, we're at a point as a species where we should be doing less walking and, thus, expending less energy.

Depends on where you live but definitely not a fad in big cities. I take these sh*ts regularly when I wanna go to the beach or somewhere that's kinda close but doesn't have good parking

This is a big move cause we have a bunch of competing scooter rental companies in LA. If i can just open Google Maps and get a Lime scooter, I'm gonna go with them because Google Maps is more convenient and a better app than Bird and Uber

I'm seeing the black joints out in Brooklyn now. I saw them and the lime ones out in Oakland last year. I fux with it. Naggas zipping and dipping. Lazy mugfuggers...
