Google Maps announces the possibility of paying for public transport tickets directly from the application in 80 agencies around the world. Regarding France, however, the firm remains fairly evasive for the moment.
In several years of existence, Google Maps has become a very powerful tool. The mapping service is equipped with a ton of features to get you from point A to point B efficiently. To make yourself even more essential, the platform allows you to pay for your metro or bus ticket without having to leave the application.
Google Maps teams split a blog post to announce that the service is expanding “payment capacity for public transport to more than 80 locations around the world.”
You can see how to pay in advance and even prepare your ticket before arriving at the station – which is useful when you are unsure of the payment options supported by a transport company.
THANK YOU GOOGLE PAY
More specifically, to pay for his metro or bus ticket in Google Maps, the user will only have to display the directions of the route of interest to see a small Google Pay button appear.
All he has to do is click on it to then complete the transaction using the bank card already registered in his Google Pay account.
