Citi Bike, Other Bike-Sharing Data In 179 Cities Added

However, Apple Maps now only shows contact information and address of the services, whereas other more sophisticated applications offer the number of available bikes as well as empty docks.

Ito claims its system "curates and integrates the disparate data of Bike Share schemes around the world" in real time into the navigation app.

Apple has signed a partnership with Ito World to add bike-sharing data in Apple Maps in over 175 cities across 36 countries. All you need to do is simply type in "bike sharing" in the search bar of Apple Maps, or simply the name of the service, and it will show you the locations on the map. But this is a big improvement over existing data.

Apple Maps will now tell users whether they can expect to find bikes available at a certain address or intersection.

The new feature helps Apple Maps keep up with Google Maps - the market-leader in consumer turn-by-turn navigation and mapping software. However, it does not provide information on a startup that's operating a dock-less bike-sharing service. Different cities will have different bike sharing services with different names. Users will still want to continue using dedicated apps for various bike sharing devices, but this is a nice update for Apple Maps nonetheless.

The maps app lists Citi Bike in NYC, Divvy in Chicago, Biketown in Portland, BIXI in Montreal, and Velib in Paris. I tried looking for stations in smaller cities and it also works in European cities with hundreds of thousands of people.
