Lime, Google Maps Integration Expands To Over 80 New Cities

Lime’s integration with Google Maps is growing in a big way.

Starting this week, riders in more than 80 new cities around the globe will be able to locate nearby Lime scooters and bikes directly from Google Maps. Estimated costs and arrival times will also be visible next to each vehicle, helping users better gauge their transportation options.

The feature is available on both Android and iOS. To view nearby Limes, Google Maps users simply need to tap the transit icon when viewing directions to any nearby destination. Once ready to unlock the scooter, a tap on the Lime card will direct users either to their Lime app or the appropriate app store.


The ability to locate Lime scooters and bikes inside Google Maps kicked off in December, with a limited global rollout in 13 markets from Brisbane, Australia to Seattle, Washington. The full list of extended cities can be seen below.
