Empowering All Transport Users to Move Around Confidentially

Date & Time

Grand AB  

Every aspect of life as a person with accessibility needs ultimately involves some sort of transport experience. Journeys are the foundation for every part of our lives. When you’re blind or low vision, the accessibility of a journey can make the difference between participation and exclusion.

RNIB and GoMedia are enabling everyone including blind and low vision persons in the UK to navigate the public transport system with greater ease and confidence.

The collaboration is working with strategic stakeholders in the transport industry to trial new navigational technologies which can aid independence and build confidence.

ollaborating with TfL, NaviLens and DLR we’ve successfully created a pilot in 4 DLR stations across London. This setup involves the scoping, creation and installation of NaviLens codes across the facilities together with a customised digital experience, training and sensitisation of staff.

Community engagement is integral to every component of this collaboration. Blind and partially sighted people have been involved at every stage and have led the implementation evaluation.
