Ride-Sharing is getting a promotion. Starting today, the option will appear as its own dedicated tab inside Google Maps. Here it will sit alongside driving, taking public transportation, and walking.
The ride-sharing tab will attempt to pull up whichever options are available in your area. One example image shows Uber and 99Taxis in Sao Paulo. Google Maps displays the price of each option and how far away, in time, the nearest vehicle is.
Previously Uber information appeared under public transportation, alongside bus and subway routes.
Google says the feature will start rolling out to Android users over the next few days, so if you don't see it yet, hopefully it's only a few minutes away.
