Google Maps with New Uber Integration

Grabbing a ride from the friendly folks over at Uber just got a little bit easier, as everyone’s favorite mapping software now includes integration with the rideshare service.The latest update from Google Maps on your mobile device now supports Uber, and if you have the Uber app on your phone as well, Uber cars show up alongside the usual options (driving, public transportation, walking) when searching directions.

This feature is limited to certain cities but, should the option appear in your zone of the woods, you can check out the travel estimate with an Uber ride and schedule your pickup with just a click or a tap.
