Google Maps Proposes New Ecological Routing


RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – Google Maps now makes road trips more fuel efficient. It can save you money while helping the environment.

If you take a look at the app, the ecological routes are indicated by a green leaf. Google calculated the average fuel economy of vehicles in the area, steepness of hills on the route, stop-and-go traffic patterns, and road types.

A percentage of the amount of fuel you save is also displayed. Most of the time, the fastest route is not the most sufficient. Google predicts that this new feature could avoid more than 1 million tons of carbon emissions per year.
