Google Maps adds Lyft and Gett to ridesharing services

Google Maps increases in ridesharing services, adding Lyft and Gett.

By Hannah Williams

Google Maps have announced the inclusion of ridesharing services Lyft and Gett on both iOS and Android.

Maps will include estimated fares and wait times when searching in cities within the United States. The feature will have a built-in button on the app to allow users to order a Lyft ride, along with a similar one for ordering a Gett ride in New York City – the only city where Gett is seen to operate within the U.S.

Along with Google’s ridesharing service for Uber, which was integrated in 2014, Google Maps now offers a total of nine options of different ridesharing services in 60 different countries.

With the inclusion of other services in the Google Maps app, not only does it become more useful for users but the addition of services like Lyft is said to also make the service more comprehensive.
