Bolt is a mobile application that mediates in organizing passenger car transport in cities. The application was created in 2013 by Markus Villig. Bolt has been operating in Poland since 2017.

A tailor-made solution

Bolt built a mobile app for fast and easy rides booking. The solution is connected to a back-end service using Google Maps APIs:

  • Geocoding API is used to translate coordinates into a street address (when ordering a ride, the application will determine your location itself).
  • Places API to find nearby points of interests (like restaurants, banks, hospitals, etc.).
  • Directions API and Distance Matrix API are used for routing and determining estimated arrival time.

The company decided to build its app on top of Google Maps because of well-developed and easy to use API-s as well as high reliability and availability of the service.

Track your ride on Google Maps

How does it work?

Choose your ride from the cars shown on Google Maps.

Thanks to the use of Google Maps APIs, the application will calculate the arrival time of your driver…

….and you will be able to monitor the current location of the car picking you up on maps.
