Forget Uber, Apple Maps wants you to get on your bike

Apple Maps now includes bike sharing data for more than 175 cities

The update comes as Apple has struck a deal with data company Ito World.

Overall the new bike-sharing network sitting within Apple Maps make it easier for travellers to access more than 12,810 point of interest.

TechCrunch reports that the data in Apple Maps doesn't include how many bikes are available at each sharing station or how many parking spaces are open. For instance, the two shared bikes I see most in my San Francisco neighborhood are Ford Go Bikes and Jump bikes, but Apple Maps lists only Ford Go Bike locations.

However, given the limited number of cities now available, it's going to be far from a universal solution.

Through a partnership with Ito World, Apple Maps now supports bike-sharing data in more than 175 cities in 36 countries, including San Francisco, New York, and London, according to TechCrunch.

However, Apple Maps' new feature will shine when any bikers travel a new town and want to explore on a human-powered pair of wheels. For the full list of available bike sharing services, check out the images below. How about a Citi Bike in NY?
