Google Maps will soon introduce tolls and … appreciate the trip



This week, Google shared what looks to be the next major feature with members of the Google Maps preview program. If the news from a member of the preview program is correct, they will automatically display toll rates on roads and bridges to the driver navigation route. Google Maps invited the member to take a survey based on their UX of these features.

This suggests that toll rates and perhaps total costs would see you later along a route before the user selects it, so they can choose between faster and cheaper, but longer routes.

Plan for car-free travel

It is part of a bigger trend to incorporate more advanced transportation planning into Google Maps. Last week, Spin, the micro-mobility unit of the Ford Motor Company, announced the integration of its scooters and electric bikes into Google Maps, making it easier to get around without a car.

Scooters and bicycles can be found on Google Maps
