Transport for London are reviewing the accessibility information that they make available via their website, Journey Planner and the open data that allows developers to produce apps. They want to give older and disabled people more confidence to use the network safely and independently.
What do you think of TfL’s information offer to help you plan your journeys and keep up with what is happening while you are out and about? Do you find what they provide useful or not, and how would you like to see it improved?
Particular questions TfL are asking:
- What online information do we currently provide that older and disabled people find useful?
- Does our website and Journey Planner provide everything that is needed?
- If we were to produce our own app(s) what do you think should be included i.e. Journey Planner, audio/visual real-time information etc.?
- Do you have an idea for a particular app that would benefit you or your members (i.e. similar to recent RLSB Wayfindr app trials at Pimlico)?
- Is there an existing app that you find useful that could be built on or improved?
- Considering many older and disabled people may not use smartphones, is there anything more we could produce to help people pre-planning their journeys or accessing travel information while using the network?
