We assume too much, take too much for granted. We assume we can see all disabilities when someone rides the bus. There are many unseen disabilities. Hearing impaired, blind and those of all ages that cannot read or have spSiPioleted al needs. People with disabilities are using public transportation. Many more would use it if they could navigate it better and there were useful components available to them. EVERY STOP should have the following:
Piloted on The Rapid Silverline let's imagine an interactive touch screen that offered...
SOUND for those that cannot see. Instructions for location, arrival, departure and safety messages and reminders for all.
Instructional IMAGES and numbers for those that cannot hear or read very well, especially hearing impaired.
On or close to the screen also BRAILLE instructions for the BLIND and legally blind.
6 retractable 8ft USB Charging Stations at the bottom of the screen...because cell phones seem to die when you need them most.
Small limited area Wi-fi because people need to stay connected to cell phones or tablets to get information to help them arrive safely!
Everyone who rides could utilize the last 2 options!
Because I am a small business professional...I imagine the screens could be used also for ad space to help support the cost.
The screens could also be solar powered.
