Google to add Bike Directions to Toronto maps
Google is set to add the Bike Directions feature to its Toronto maps as it brings Canadian cities inline with those in the U.S., who received this information back in March. Although no specific date was given for the arrival of the new feature, a spokesperson for the company said that it'll be live sometime this week.
Toronto is one of nine Canadian cities that provided Google with detailed info related to bike lanes and trails, which will be factored into route suggestions along with traffic volume. With this addition of cycling directions and the still-newish TTC trip planner, Toronto users of Google maps can finally take advantage of the full range of features the technology offers.
We'll have more on the maps when they go live, including a comparison with other bike directions generators like Ride the City.
