Google Adds Lyft and Gett to Google Maps
Google today boosted the number of ride-hailing services available within Google Maps to a total of nine. Moving forward, Lyft and Gett will display ride options in the U.S. alongside Uber and others, allowing users to find the cheapest, quickest, or most appealing option to get from one place to another. Google Maps will display estimated ride arrival times, travel times, and fares, as well as any additional services that may be offered by each individual ride provider. The new ride-hailing options are available to Maps for Android and iOS.
