Lyft has just announced that it will be expanding its platform outside of ride-share vehicles to accommodate all forms of available transportation modes, including bikes, shared rides, scooter, walking to and taking the subway, bus and car rental. The ride-share company will be releasing changes throughout the next few weeks that will transition the app into a one-stop-shop for all transportation needs.

Google Maps has been the mainstay in the overall transportation app department for quite some time, but Lyft is now drumming up some strong competition. Upcoming changes to the Lyft app will include the ability to toggle back and forth between each mode of transportation listed on the app through various visual modes. A new “single-mode selector” helps users navigate price by allowing them to compare costs across all methods without leaving the app. Lyft will also be adding a live, in-app map that displays every transportation option nearby, not limited to ride-share vehicles. This feature will be similar to the map Lyft already uses, except it will include many more transit options.

“At Lyft, we’re working toward a future where cities are centered around people, not cars,” says John Zimmer, co-founder & president of Lyft. The changes we’re making today will unlock better transportation solutions—whether that’s a trip on public transit, a bike ride or a shared Lyft—for people in cities around the country.”

Elsewhere in transportation, Tesla’s million-mile batteries may be on the way.

Chromium’s “Show Url” is the most useless thing I have ever seen in a browser

Every now and then, browser makers make decisions that seem in diametrical opposition to what user's want or expect from a browser. Granted, these companies have lots of Telemetry data that the public does not have access to, and that data may suggest to them that the change makes sense. Google started to hide certain…
