This is a huge number and to address that, Google today announced a two-wheeler navigation mode for Google Maps, which is also an India-first feature. It'll also provides customized traffic and arrival time estimations.
Along with vehicle, public transport, and walking options, motorbike mode has shorter travel times which take into account the speed of bikes, and routes that take advantage of motorbikes' ability to fit down smaller alleys and passages. For instance offline maps, landmark navigation, which we launched in India first are now popular with other map users across the world. Similarly, there are highways where two wheelers are not allowed. We ran a check to do a real world test of this mode on Google Maps and find the best possible route from our office in Lower Parel to three different locations in Mumbai. We're seeing the new mode as well, on the most recent form of the Android app. The two-wheeler map will show short-cut routes for the motorcycle and scooter riders.
