In the mobile application “Yandex.Map” added the ability to build a route for bicycles. The function started on Android, but for iOS it will work later. About this was informed by representatives of “Yandex”.

The new function “Yandex.Maps” builds the road, giving priority to bicycle paths, paths in parks and other routes, which are more convenient to ride a bicycle. The path may intersect with cars, but bypassing multi-lane routes. Also on the map you can see the rental points of “Velobike”.

To compile the route, a grid of roads is used , which includes road sections and intersections in the city. As noted in “Yandex”, the database is constantly replenished by users, adding new routes. Now on each of them will be signed, it is suitable for bicycles or not.

Cycle routes in Yandex.Maps are available in Moscow and St. Petersburg, in other cities the function is in the beta test.
