An app developed to get us to bus stops

One of my buddies sent me this article titled Next Stop on the App Store: Artificial Intelligence Mobile App Helps People With Low Vision Find Bus Stops and I’m sending this to my team at Metro to see what they think.

I know of a couple of places where it could be benificial to me, one around here where we have multiple bus stops at the same area, and the potentials of multiple buses stopping at the same stop.

I don’t rely on Google Maps necessarily, but I rely on what vision I have to find benches and then wait near light, or if there is a pole nearby, wait there.

One driver got someone off because I wasn’t at the official stop when I wrote a report of a passup. I explained how we were trained and they asked whether I had someone to teach me.

Sadly, I had nobody to teach me, and I do not like getting drivers in trouble even for a passup. It doesn’t make me feel good, as I’m a rider like anyone else. I even was passed up early in the morning, as I was under the light, but they didn’t see me until they were across the street.

One driver even stopped to pick me up at a stop after they saw me and I was at the bench and near the pole, but I definitely wonder if this app could’ve helped me?

I’m curious on why I need sighted assistance to set up the app? Transit App, Metro’s official app, didn’t need to be set up by a sighted person for me to utalize its features.

I’ll see what my people think, but i’m curious on whether you nice people have used this app before or even read the article?

Get in touch.
