You have Nextrip GPSz-based service for sighted passengers to use on enabled mobile devices. What is MTA doing to make Nextrip service availabe to the sight-challenged or blind riders (who rely on public transit)? Is there such a device which verbally announces vehicle arrival that can be subsidized by MTA/Fed Gov’t to give sight challenged people a better alternative than wait for long periods in the elements?
If I was blind, i’d surely use such a device to not stand for long periods awaiting a bus… which may take 50 minutes. At non-peak hours.
That’s a good question and I don’t know the answer. I do know that iPhones have accessibility features that can be turned on in the general settings that has the phone read things on the screen. I don’t know how compatible it is with nextbus and such but I will ask around.
