Apple Maps is also showing data for Toronto, as Bike Share Toronto is listed, along with Bike House and a station at U of T Scarborough.

Apple is adding more features to Apple Maps in order to get the attention of audience who are more tilted towards Google Maps.

However, Apple Maps now only shows contact information and address of the services, whereas other more sophisticated applications offer the number of available bikes as well as empty docks. The update comes after the Cupertino giant struck a deal with Ito World, a transport information company. For instance, the two shared bikes I see most in my San Francisco neighborhood are Ford Go Bikes and Jump bikes, but Apple Maps lists only Ford Go Bike locations. As the name of bike service is different in every city, so this feature can facilitate you in local bike sharing service.

Once again, Apple chose to integrate an existing data set instead of putting together this data in-house.

Apple Maps will now tell users whether they can expect to find bikes available at a certain address or intersection.

Apple Maps' bike-sharing data has been expanded. It is expected that these features will come with future updates, or else there isn't much benefit to switching to Apple Maps with apps like Mobike, Ofo, and oBike in the market.

The addition of bicycle sharing helps Apple Maps move ever closer in the race to catch up to Google Maps. This makes Apple Maps a solid application for guidance around your local area.
