Eco-friendly routes can now be found on Google Maps

The Google Maps app will now specifically mark eco-friendly routes. Routes with less air pollution and less traffic and less climbs will be suggested more. This feature will be available in the US for the first time later this year. Following this, the facility will be available in other countries as well.

Passengers will be able to choose between the original route and the eco-friendly route on Google Maps. Google Maps is currently adding new features to the US, gathering data from the US Government’s National Renewable Energy Lab. Different vehicles and roads will be part of the experiment.

In addition, Google Maps will add more climate-centric changes. From June, Google Maps will also provide drivers with information about low emission zones.
