Just recently, Google Maps had announced their latest Motorbike Mode feature for the convenience of motorcyclists and apart Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam, Hong Kong has also hopped onto the bandwagon in providing this blessing to motorcyclists.
In the busy cities of Hong Kong, traffic is no stranger and with the new feature, bikers get to travel faster and reach their destination with accurate ETA and improved routes suitable for bikers.
The streets of Hong Kong is home to many deliverymen and dispatch riders that literally rely on the time for their job. This new feature would make things very easy for everyone. Not to mention, it will steer riders away from restricted roads where motorcycles are not allowed to enter, making it faster to complete their tasks.
First developed in India, this feature is catered for the riders in Asia-Pacific, where the roads are much narrower and where two-wheelers are one of the main commute. Thus far on the motorbike mode basket would be Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Taiwan and now Hong Kong. The list is yet to be exhausted.
