Apple Maps shows the closest TechCrunch bike stations

Apple has signed a partnership with Ito’s world to add bike sharing data on Apple Maps in more than 175 cities in 36 countries. This feature is now available and helps you find the nearest station by typing “bike sharing” in the search bar or the name of the service.

Once again, Apple has chosen to integrate an existing dataset rather than collecting this data in-house. Ito World has worked with dozens of companies to license and standardize bike sharing data. Thus, Apple only needs to integrate one data model to support hundreds of bike sharing services.

Apple doesn’t start from scratch as the company has already integrated some bike sharing data in several cities. But that’s a big improvement over the existing data.

Apple Maps doesn’t report the number of available bikes or empty docks. Hopefully the company will add this in an upcoming update. It only provides the address, name and contact information of the service, so this feature is not a substitute for more advanced local user applications.

But it can be very handy if you are traveling to a different city and want to cycle. Since the name of the service is different in every city, you often find your way to Google when looking for local bike sharing services.

With this update you can enter “bike sharing” in any city and find the name of the service and the location of the nearest station. It does not inform whether the startup runs a bicycle sharing service in this city without docks. So you have to open the Mobike, Ofo or oBike app yourself.

Apple Maps supports Citi Bike in New York, Ford GoBike in San Francisco, BIKETOWN in Portland, Santander Cycles in London, Biking in Barcelona, ​​BIXI in Montreal, CityCycle in Brisbane, nextbike in Germany, Austria, Croatia, Switzerland, UK and dozens other. I have tried to look for stations in smaller cities and it also works in European cities with hundreds of thousands of people.

Apple is slowly adding more data to Apple Maps to keep it relevant to Google Maps. The app now supports airport and mall maps, lane guidance, public transportation, electric vehicle charging stations and more. Your mileage may vary, but Apple Maps may now be a good fit for your area.

Update: Here is the full list of supported services. It represents a total of 176 services in 179 cities.
