Bombshell: Denver B-cycle will shut down on Jan. 30. The city will also shake up its scooter program in a radical reorganization, creating a months-long gap in service that could add more cars to the city’s already congested streets.

Google Maps will now show you nearby Lime scooters, pedal bikes and e-bikes in its transit directions. The move highlights how tech companies are racing to become the go-to app when planning a trip—and the many options excluded from Google Maps.
