Get Moving with Google Maps
We’re excited to announce an update to our integration with Google Maps!
You can now get an estimated pickup time and fare for your Uber in Google Maps
For users with Uber installed on their Android or iPhone, Google Maps now shows the estimated pickup time, fare, and travel time to the destination in an Uber. A single tap on the Uber card seamlessly jumps you into the Uber app and sets the destination address, which is then passed on to your driver upon pickup. The feature is now live for users in over 30 cities around the world, with more cities to come in the future.
You will see the option to Uber at the bottom of the screen when you select either the transit or walking options. This update makes it more obvious when Uber is the clear choice to get to your destination—whether we’re saving you time with our short pickup and transit times, or offering an affordable price for your ride.
For over a decade, Google Maps has been helping people explore and move around their city. Now, with our shared mission, we’re thrilled to continue partnering with the Google Maps team to make that easier than ever.
Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
