Google Maps has revealed a feature that highlights wheelchair accessible routes.
The feature is now available in London, New York, Tokyo, Mexico City, Boston and Sydney. The "wheelchair accessible" routes have been rolled out at major metropolitan transit centres around the world. Presence of several escalators and stairs at trains and bus stations means that navigating through these transportation hubs is not easy for those who use wheelchairs.
Better places to stay: In a somewhat similar move, Airbnb also said this week that it added new filters to its service so people could search for much more specific kinds of accessibility features than they could previously. Select this option, and then your navigation directions will be updated to include only options that are wheelchair-friendly.
In cities such as San Francisco or NY, you can find information online on how wheelchair-accessible the streets and stations are, although it's not exactly easy to navigate those sites. You will be able to see the list of all that possible routes that accommodate wheelchairs.
"We're looking forward to working with additional transit agencies in the coming months to bring more wheelchair accessible routes to GoogleMaps", Rio Akasaka, Product Manager, GoogleMaps, said in a blog post on Friday.
Google Maps on Thursday launched a "wheelchair-accessible" option for six major cities. When you tap on the two-line description and scroll down to the accessibility section, you will know the place doesn't have a feature if you see a no symbol next to it.
By adding this feature Google Maps just made so easy the movement of physical disabled people, because anyone with a physical disability knows it well that it is not that simple.
