The aim is to help users pay for parking without having to touch a meter, said Google Maps product manager Vishal Dutta and Google Pay's Fausto Araujo.

"Now you'll be able to plan your trip, buy your fare, and start riding without needing to toggle between multiple apps," The company wrote in a blog post.
