Metlink Google Price Hike

June 20, 2018

Metlink is crying foul after Google increased the price the public transport provider will have to pay to use Google Maps from $1000 a month, to $30,000 a month.


Spokesman Clayton Anderson says the massive price hike was not fair and it had been given too little notice of the change, which will take effect from mid-July.


The price change is part of a global reset by Google affecting a wide range of businesses

including retail chains and real estate agents.


Google announced new pricing for embedding Google Maps into software last month,

but Metlink said it was only advised on Monday.


Google Maps underpins a Metlink service that lets people plan journeys on its website and see how far away buses, trains and ferries are.
