Metro For All

08/12/2014 | 0 comments

Metro for All logoMetro - Wayfinding - Accessibility.

What Metro For All does: Collect data about the infrastructure and layouts of metro stations; Analyze and visualize data related to metro usage, including geospatial data; Collect data about the infrastructure and layouts of metro stations; Research metro systems around the world and blog about them.

Who are we doing it for?

All subway commuters can benefit from our work. Right now we focus our attention on needs of passengers with restricted mobility, i.e. people who have difficulties travelling on their own – wheelchair and stroller users, aged people, commuters carrying heavy and oversized luggage and so on. But apps for regular commuters are also coming soon.

Why are we doing it?

We want metro transit journeys to become easier and more comfortable. And for that you need to know which exit is nearest to your destination and what is the best way to get there with a heavy suitcase. The data we collect and analyse can also be used by decision-makers for improvement of accessibility and navigation in metro systems.
