16 March, 2018, 19:45
When the wheelchair accessible transport option is selected, it provides users with the best accessible route which factors in the availability of wheelchair ramps and lifts on various routes.
The new option which is available in six cities like London and NY, targets to make travel easier for people who need an accessible route on public transportation. It will initially be offered in a handful of major cities, including New York, Boston, London, and Tokyo.
With a new Google Maps feature, the technology giant is looking to make it easier for people with disabilities to get around. Then tap "Options" and in the "Routes" section and you'll see "wheelchair-accessible" as a new route type. Google says that it will work with the transit agencies to bring more routes in the Maps.
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.
