Be My Eyes and Moovit join forces to make public transit more accessible.

September 2018

Be My Eyes and Moovit are teaming up to pursue one common goal: to make public transit more accessible for blind and low vision transit users.

Public transit can impose a challenge for people who are blind or have low vision and rely on public transit to get to work and travel independently. Catching the right train, finding the bus stop or determining your departure time is imperative to getting to your destination quickly and easily. Be My Eyes’ goal is to make the world more accessible for people with blindness or vision loss, which includes public transportation. With Be My Eyes, blind and low vision users are connected to sighted volunteers with a tap of a button, who are ready to help them navigate to work, find their way through a new environment or choose the best transit route.

Getting around should be accessible for all. Be My Eyes and Moovit make it possible for blind and low vision individuals to travel independently and efficiently with public transportation.

How Be My Eyes Users have used Moovit for traveling with public transportation:

I used to have to ask someone to tell me what bus stop I was at or which tram was coming, but now Moovit can help. – Ali, United States
Moovit helped me find the right train platform, and once it arrived I used Be My Eyes to make my way on board. – Marco, Switzerland
