Now Apple Maps Shows You the Nearest Bike-Sharing Stations

Apple Maps now includes bike sharing data for more than 175 cities

Apple Maps now includes bike sharing data for more than 175 cities

Apple and Ito World has recently signed a partnership, so from now on, Apple Maps will boast data regarding nearest bike-sharing stations.

Ito claims its system "curates and integrates the disparate data of Bike Share schemes around the world" in real time into the navigation app.

Apple has parented with Ito World to bring bike-sharing information in more than 175 cities in 36 countries, including San Francisco, New York, and London. All you need to do is simply type in "bike sharing" in the search bar of Apple Maps, or simply the name of the service, and it will show you the locations on the map. But with the current Apple Maps update, you can do the same through it as well. I hope the company is going to add this in an upcoming update.

This feature is useful when you are travelling from one city to another and want some adventure on bike. Different cities will have different bike sharing services with different names.

Though the latest update is a big thing, it isn't enough to lure users of more sophisticated apps for bike-sharing information.

This new app supports Citi Bike in NYC, Ford GoBike in San Francisco, BIKETOWN in Portland, Santander Cycles in London, bicing in Barcelona, BIXI in Montreal, CityCycle in Brisbane, nextbike in Germany, Austria, Croatia, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and so many others. The app now also supports airport and mall maps etc.

However, there is no integration with dockless bike-sharing services, like Jump, Mobike and Ofo, at the moment. We can say now that Apple Maps could be a good option for your local area.
