Google Maps is going multimodal. The navigation app announced the launch of a new feature today that pairs transit directions with biking and ride-sharing options so customers can get directions from point A to point B using a variety of transportation modes.
Both features work by inputting your destination and then tapping the “transit” tab in the app. If you’re interested in taking a ride-sharing vehicle, you’ll see information about each leg of your trip, including how much your ride will cost, how long the wait is, if there’s traffic on your ride, and when your bus or train departs. If biking suits your fancy, you’ll see routes tailored for cyclists along with everything you need to know about the transit portion of your journey.
