We don't share any information with the ride-service provider until you have tapped on a result. Here’s what is shared:
- Maps shares your pickup location and destination. Your current location and the names you made for places, like "Home" and "Work," aren’t shared.
- Ride-service providers share information like estimates for cost and wait times.
When you look for a ride, Google Maps will provide you with an estimated cost. The final price for the ride will be determined by the ride-service provider, not Google. For more information, contact the ride-service provider.
