New Delhi: In its latest attempt to make travelling easier for users, Google has tied up with taxi aggregators Ola and Uber in India. This follows an update in Google Maps which now includes a dedicated tab to provide users with information for cab services.

Also users will be able to compare all commuting options right from within the Google Maps app.

"If you are looking for a cab service in major cities in India, you'll be able to choose from Uber or Ola cab services. If you have a provider's app installed, you’ll be able to see fare estimates and pick up times and if a car is available near you.

Uber users will be able to choose from uberGO and uberX services, while Ola customers can choose from Ola Mini, Ola Micro and Ola Sedan options," said Google in a blog post.
