Google Maps has announced ‘Wheelchair Accessible’ route across all the major metropolitan transit centers, round the world. Though initially rolled out in – London, New York, Tokyo, Mexico City, Boston and Sidney – the feature would soon be expanded to the rest. While launching the service, Google officials maintained that they were looking forward to aiding people, who use wheelchairs.
In order to access the ‘Wheelchair Accessible’ routes, users simply have to type the desired destination on the Google Maps. Out of the options available under ‘Directions’, Google Maps would show you the ‘Wheelchair Accessible’ routes. Google Maps is said to be quite busy capturing and updating the ‘Street View’ imagery of transit stations.
