Now Apple Maps Shows You the Nearest Bike-Sharing Stations

Users of the sobi Hamilton bike sharing service can search for stations using the same method.

Apple Maps is also showing data for Toronto, as Bike Share Toronto is listed, along with Bike House and a station at U of T Scarborough.

Ito World has helped out with so many companies to license and normalize bike-sharing data. This update is rolling out in over 175 cities across 36 countries.

Apple and Ito World partnership gives the former access to bike-sharing data from over 179 cities and of 176 services.

The new feature helps Apple Maps keep up with Google Maps - the market-leader in consumer turn-by-turn navigation and mapping software.

Apple Maps will now tell users whether they can expect to find bikes available at a certain address or intersection. The app previously contained limited information on bike-sharing services in a handful of cities.

Apple Maps now supports a wide range of services in many cities.

The maps app lists Citi Bike in NYC, Divvy in Chicago, Biketown in Portland, BIXI in Montreal, and Velib in Paris.

However, there is no integration with dockless bike-sharing services, like Jump, Mobike and Ofo, at the moment. Let's be honest, bike sharing isn't equivalent to the Mario Kart skin Google rolled out to Google Maps for MAR10 Day, but it's a good start. In fact, the app has now added functionalities which allows you to search for airports and malls, as well as lane guidance, public transits, EV charging stations, and much more.
