Ride-sharing services such as Uber, Lyft, Grab, Ola and the others have certainly revolutionized the way we commute. It’s cheaper, faster, more convenient and the best part is you can book a ride directly from your mobile phone.
If ride sharing is your go-to preference, do you know Google Maps assists you to compare prices, locations and time estimation between the many car riding services?
Right inside your iOS or Android’s Google Maps, there is ride-sharing tab and here is what you will discover :
- Once you type in your current location and destination, you will be given a list of ride-sharing services available near you, complete with fare and time estimation.
- Google Maps will also inform you if there are any special discounted offers available. You will also be notified if surge pricing is in effect as well as the multiplier.
- You will be brought to App Store or Google Play if you have yet to download the app.
The next time before you commute or engaging a ride-sharing service, definitely give this a try. It may save you just a mere couple of bucks, but who’s complaining?
