Google Maps will now help travelers how to find the most eco-friendly routes
Google has decided to be more aware of the traveling issue.
The company has released features on Google Maps and Google Flight so travelers can find out how their traveling plan contributes to climate change.
Google Maps will now show drivers which route will be the most energy-efficient, according to CNN.
This is equivalent to taking 200,000 cars off the road which Google claims
Looking at Google Maps, the driver can see the most environmentally friendly route with a small green page next to it. CNN reports that the route option will include information about how long it will take to travel and how much fuel the driver can save.
In the last one year, the use of biking directions on Google Maps has increased by 96 percent, according to the company. The feature will give cyclists details about their route without having to turn on the Suzuki or on the counter.
According to CNN, cyclists will be able to track their traveling progress, see updates on their ETA in real-time, and learn more about route altitude.
Google Maps has launched a feature in nearly 300 cities that will provide bike and scooter sharing information so users can find it at a nearby docking station and determine how many vehicles are available at the moment.
Google Flight users will now be able to see carbon emissions estimates for almost every flight in search results, along with information on pricing and duration of travel, according to Google
