Getting an Uber in Google Maps Just Got Easier
It’s a new year and you’ve got new places to be. When you’re on the go and looking at transportation options in Google Maps, you can now request an Uber ride directly from the Google Maps app.
It’s already been easy to compare wait times and the pricing of available Uber options, including POOL, uberX, and uberXL, in Google Maps. With the latest integration update powered by Uber’s API, you can now request a ride, see your driver en route, contact your driver, and follow your trip status — all without having to switch over to the Uber app. Plus, you can pay with your options on file with either Uber or Google.
To get started, all you have to do is open the ride services tab on Google Maps and tap on “REQUEST” to take a ride. For a limited time, all new riders in the U.S. will receive $15 off their first ride.
