Google Micromobility lets you find public micromobility travel options and real-time vehicle availability in Google Maps. With Micromobility, your information becomes accessible to millions of mobile Google users in various languages. It can also make eco-friendly trip planning quick and easy for users.
Google Micromobility makes last-mile trip planning easier for your riders. It integrates vehicle locations and your app launcher into Google Maps. Micromobility providers can:
- Reach more riders: Link users to your app, which helps new and experienced riders discover your services.
- Provide worldwide coverage: Google Maps supports multiple languages, which helps users plan trips in their native language with a familiar system.
- Partner with Google Micromobility for free: Any provider that offers public Micromobility options can participate. This includes people with bikes, e-bikes, and scooters. All you have to do is integrate your vehicle availability data.
To keep a high standard for user experience, the Google Micromobility Partner Program asks partners to meet certain requirements.
Important: You can only use Google Micromobility in countries that have the cycling feature available in Google Maps. We plan to expand the feature to more countries. For future updates about availability, visit our Developer Site.

- Publicly accessible shared bike or scooter services
