Apple Maps just added bike-sharing data for 175 cities

Apple Maps has pushed-out a new update in an effort to keep up with Google

Typing "Bike sharing" into Apple Maps' search bar will find the stations of the local service, so you'll know where to pick up and drop off a bike. While Apple Maps has had limited bike-sharing data previously, this new partnership provides a much larger data set than Apple was able to put together in-house, and allows Apple to benefit from Ito World's data as more companies are added in the future.

While this is certainly not new to Apple Maps, the update is seen as a big improvement over existing data. For instance, the two shared bikes I see most in my San Francisco neighborhood are Ford Go Bikes and Jump bikes, but Apple Maps lists only Ford Go Bike locations.

Apple and Ito World have partnered up to bring bike-sharing dock information to Apple Maps, TechCrunch reports. As the name of the service is different in each city, you often end up on Google looking for local bike-sharing services.

Apple Maps can now search for nearby bike sharing services in 175 cities in 36 countries

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

The iOS app can now provide the location of the nearest bike-sharing service in the user's city. It doesn't tell you if a startup is operating a dock-less bike-sharing service in that city, so you'll have to open the Mobike, Ofo or oBike app yourself.

Despite its shortcomings, the latest Apple Maps update is remarkable in the sense that it shows how the Cupertino giant is dedicated to improving the user experience of its mapping service. The app now also supports airport and mall maps etc.
