In a post on his community page, Google To help ease the choice between toll roads and regular roads, we are introducing toll prices on Google Maps for the first time.
How will the toll fee facility work?
Before you start navigating, you’ll see an estimated toll price for your destination. Google relies on “trusted information” received from local tolling authorities to arrive at an estimated toll fee. Google explained, “We look at factors such as whether or not the toll will pass, what day of the week it is, as well as how much the toll is expected to cost at the specific time when you will pass it.”
In addition, users will have the option within the settings to show the toll price with or without the toll pass. This is because many regions have price changes depending on the payment method used by people in certain regions. If you don’t want to pay tolls and want to take another route, there is also an option to avoid routes that cross toll roads entirely, if possible, by selecting ‘Avoid tolls’ within Settings.
We checked the feature on Google Maps for iOS And watch it live. However, it is not available for every route. For example, when we searched from Delhi-Jaipur or Delhi-Udaipur, we were seeing estimated toll charges. But when we checked Delhi-Chandigarh, Google Maps did not show the estimated toll charges. Google says users will start seeing toll prices Android and iOS for about 2000 toll roads in the US, India, Japan and Indonesia. So it is not clear how many toll roads in India are part of this Google Maps feature.
