Everyone knows how boring it is to enter your destination into each of your rideshare apps to see which is the cheapest. Fortunately, Google Maps can help you display all of the options in one place. Just type in your destination and tap the icon of the person calling for a taxi. Google Maps will show you each ridesharing service in the area, along with the cost of each travel option (e.g. with Uber you’ll see UberPool, UberX, UberXL, etc.). You will still need to go to the carpooling service app to request your ride. Discover the Uber tips every passenger should know.
