Spin e-scooters and e-bikes can now be found on Google Maps when given route options for their journeys, according to the company’s press release.
When looking for directions, Google Maps users can locate Spin vehicles in 84 towns, cities, and campuses in the U.S., Canada, Germany, and Spain.
Users can also see how long it will take to walk to the vehicle, as well as battery range and expected arrival time. Users will then be directed to the Spin app to pay for the vehicle, unlock it, and take their ride.
“With this integration, Spin is making it easier for millions of Google Maps users to easily incorporate shared bikes and scooters into their daily trips,” said Ben Bear, CEO of Spin. “Our goal is to make it as low friction as possible for consumers to plan multi-modal journeys. It needs to be just as easy, and even more convenient to get around with bikes, buses, trains, and scooters as it is with a personal car. This partnership with Google is our biggest platform integration yet with many more in the pipeline.”
This latest integration follows Spin’s recent addition into a number of global and regional journey planning platforms such as CityMapper, Moovit, Transit, and Kölner Verkehrs-Betriebe (KVB).
