As we all know, Google Maps has been looking to diversify at all costs for some years now. After Voi scooters two years ago, it’s now the turn of Bolt‘s on-demand transport service to integrate the Californian giant’s application in Berlin. We take a closer look at the details of this alliance, which aims to simplify mobility in the German capital…
Making it easier to get around Berlin
Berlin is a lively city, rich in history and diversity, but navigating it can be tricky… However, following the partnership between Bolt and Google Maps, planning a trip to Berlin has never been easier… For over a billion users over the age of 18, Google Maps is the most trusted companion when it comes to planning a trip. It guides them confidently through all their urban explorations. To further strengthen this trust, Google Maps has chosen to integrate passenger information from Bolt’s VTC solution. By integrating Bolt into the application, Berliners and visitors have access to a fast and practical on-demand transport solution, while benefiting from Google’s navigation experience.
Bolt journeys at your fingertips
Now, when users enter a destination into Google Maps, the application offers Bolt as a transport option. This means that users can get to their destination quickly and safely by being redirected to the Bolt application. What’s more, with just a few clicks, users can choose Bolt as their preferred mode of transport. All at no extra cost. There’s no doubt that this integration eliminates the need to juggle different applications, greatly simplifying the process of planning trips to Berlin.
Valuable information integrated into Google Maps
As well as making it easier to book journeys, this collaboration also provides passengers with essential information for making informed decisions. Before selecting a Bolt journey, users can consult important details directly in the Google Maps interface. For example, the estimated duration of the journey, its cost, or the different categories of Bolt vehicle available. This approach helps users to choose the means of transport best suited to their needs.
