Google loves helping us all get around the world with Google Maps, now they’re making it easier listing Lime scooters, pedal bikes, and e-bikes as transit options when you’re navigating your way around select cities around the world.

From today, Google Maps will list the nearest location of a Lime scooters, bikes and e-bikes available near you along your planned travel route in 13 cities around the world. Google is starting off with cities in New Zealand, the US and Australia though they’ve promised more will arrive soon with residents of Auckland, Austin, Baltimore, Brisbane (AU), Dallas, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, San Antonio, San Jose, Scottsdale and Seattle the first to get the new integration.

To check out where your nearest Lime transport is in your city, simply enter in your destination then tap on the transit tab in Google Maps to see nearby Lime vehicles – which of course means that vehicle options vary by city, with Lime only offering selected options in certain cities.

The new option to use Lime vehicles is rolling out from today for Google Maps users on both Android and iOS.
