Apple Maps Now Shows Bike Sharing Stations in Montreal, Toronto and Beyond

The update comes after the Cupertino giant struck a deal with Ito World, a transport information company.

As TechCrunch notes Apple Maps doesn't show bike availability or empty spots for now, but hopefully that will come soon.

Apple has signed a partnership with Ito World to add bike-sharing data in Apple Maps in over 175 cities across 36 countries.

Rashford seeks no reassurance over United role
There is nothing in the laws of the game which dictates how you win football matches - the beauty is often in the blend of styles. Midfielder Paul Pogba remains a doubt, however, as United try to capitalise on the 0-0 draw in the first leg in Spain.

Once again, Apple chose to integrate an existing data set instead of putting together this data in-house. The app previously contained limited information on bike-sharing services in a handful of cities.

All you have to do is type "bike sharing" into the Maps search bar.

If you type "bike sharing" into Apple Maps, it will scroll to the bike sharing station closest to you.

The woman's attorney, William Shaheen, said the woman is from Merrimack, 25 miles south of the state capital, Concord. The winning ticket was sold at Reed's Ferry Market in Merrimack, N.H., for the January 6 drawing.

It won't replace more sophisticated bike sharing apps for you. It supports Citi Bike in New York City, Ford GoBike in San Francisco, BIKETOWN in Portland, BIXI in Montreal, Santander Cycles in London, CityCycle in Brisbane, bicing in Barcelona, as well as nextbike in Germany, Croatia, Austria, Switzerland and the United Kingdom and many others.

Still, it's a step up over what information Apple Maps did offer in the past and is likely to be useful for casual bike-share users who are in the Apple universe and want quick information on bike services offered in different cities. I tried looking for stations in smaller cities and it also works in European cities with hundreds of thousands of people.
