Google Maps is Piloting ‘Wheelchair Accessible’ Transit Navigation in Boston

Apr 26, 2018

In the latest edition of the AARP Livable Communities Newsletter, an article reveals that Boston was among only a handful of cities worldwide where Google Maps is testing “Wheelchair Accessible” routes for transit navigation.

New York City is the only other place in the US where this feature is currently available.

A video shows the challenges for those, not only using wheelchairs, but for many others trying to get from “point A to point B.” The article with an explanation of how to use this feature on Google Maps is available here.
