Google said it is expanding the ability to pay for transit fares for over 80 transit agencies around the world.

Google Maps is adding the ability to pay for street parking and transit fares right from the app.

The initiative is being rolled out in collaboration with Google Pay, the company said on Wednesday.

Google Maps said it is adding two mobile parking payment solutions providers, Passport and ParkMobile, to its app.

“Simply tap on the ‘Pay for Parking’ button that appears as you near your destination. Then enter your meter number, the amount of time you want to park for, and tap ‘Pay.’ Need to add more time to your meter? Easily extend your parking session with just a few taps,” Vishal Dutta, Product Manager, Google Maps; and Fausto Araujo, Product Manager, Google Pay wrote in a blog post.

Google said it is expanding the ability to pay for transit fares for over 80 transit agencies around the world.

“Now you’ll be able to plan your trip, buy your fare, and start riding without needing to toggle between multiple apps,” Dutta and Araujo wrote.

“You can understand how to pay in advance and even get your fare ready to go before you arrive at the station — which is helpful when you’re not sure what payment options a transit agency supports.”

When users get transit directions, they will see the option to pay with your phone with the credit or debit cards already linked to your Google Pay account.
