BlindWays: bus stop navigation for the blind

Perkins School for the Blind
Navigate to outdoor Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) bus stops easily and independently with BlindWays. Fully accessible via VoiceOver, BlindWays will help guide you to within a cane’s distance of an outdoor bus stop sign using permanent landmark clues contributed by volunteers. Picking up where GPS leaves off, BlindWays presents landmarks in a sequence aligned with the direction you are walking. In addition, BlindWays provides predictive, location-based bus arrival information, and saves your most-used bus routes for future reference.

BlindWays was built from the ground up with accessibility in mind and inspired by feedback from the blind community. The app was built by a team of developers and testers who are accessibility users and experts, many of whom are also visually impaired.

BlindWays navigational clues are contributed by volunteers who can easily submit them while they’re waiting for the bus or walking in the neighborhood. Those clues help BlindWays users navigate easily and independently to work, school and appointments, rather than relying on expensive ride services or favors from friends and family.
