Ride-sharing giants, Uber, have penned a new long-term agreement with navigation provider, Google Maps.


The four-year agreement provides Uber with access to Google's Maps Platform Rides and Deliveries Services.

Under the agreement, first reported by Yahoo Finance, Uber and Google are venturing into a new pricing model based on the number of billable trips taken with Services rather than the number of requests.

Tiered volume-based discounts are also available in the deal.


Uber uses Maps as part of its app to assist drivers in navigating trips and to offer riders the opportunity to see designated routes in advance.
