Google Maps has updated navigation suggestions when building a complex route. Now, if there is a large distance between transfers, which is difficult to overcome on foot, the cards offer to call a taxi.
how reported on the official Google blog, the route details show the waiting time for a taxi to arrive, the cost of the trip and the level of congestion on the roads. The user can choose a company that provides taxi services, and the tariff:
Among taxi services, Maps lists companies that are represented in the user’s region.
Also, when building complex routes, Google maps began to offer users to ride part of the way by bicycle. In this case, the route is built taking into account the presence of cycle paths.
Previously, on Google maps, a user could only get a bicycle route if he intended to ride his bicycle from the beginning to the end.
New options will appear for users of maps on Android and iOS around the world in the coming weeks.
Recall that in June Google Maps learned to predict the load of trains and buses based on reviews about trips left by other people.
