accessCITY is in an interactive wayfinding tool that empowers people with accessibility needs to feel more confident in their daily commutes. By clearly identifying sidewalk infrastructure deficits, accessCITY allows users to visualize their walking routes and navigate their city’s walkways based on their own mobility concerns.
accessCITY addresses challenges people with mobility concerns face in their day-to-day commutes and empowers users to walk through their city with confidence.
Sidewalks play an important role in cities – they protect us from traffic, connect us to our neighbours, and support the oldest and most common form of transportation in the world: our own two feet. Yet, as a result of uneven pavements, a lack of drop curbs, improperly designed sidewalks and otherwise sub-par or non-existent walkways, more and more people with accessibility concerns are choosing to avoid their city sidewalks and stay home out of fear of fall and injury.
accessCITY is in an interactive wayfinding tool that helps people with accessibility needs navigate from Point A to Point B, worry-free. By clearly identifying sidewalk infrastructure deficits, accessCITY allows people using strollers, wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes and other mobility aids to visualize their walking routes and navigate their city’s walkways based on their own mobility concerns. Ultimately, accessCITY helps to create cities that are inclusive, happy, and safe for all.
