Get Moving with Google Maps
Update: Starting March 15, 2016, when you search for directions using Google Maps on your mobile device, Google Maps will provide a dedicated tab showing estimated pickup times and fares for each of the many Uber options available in a particular city, from uberX to uberXL to UberBLACK. Since the last major update in November 2014, the Uber feature in Google Maps has grown from 30 cities to over 350 cities around the world.
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.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
