Google Maps is helping people to navigate and explore the world by providing directions worldwide, to people who are traveling by auto, bicycle or on foot.
Google Maps is filling in an important detail for its transit navigation by giving users the option to check a box that will highlight wheelchair accessible stations.
In another update to facilitate the public transit, Google Maps has introduced a feature for the differently abled.
The service is purely aimed at major metropolitan areas (such as Sydney) and their transit routes such as buses, trains, light rail (trams) and ferries.
In cities such as San Francisco or NY, you can find information online on how wheelchair-accessible the streets and stations are, although it's not exactly easy to navigate those sites.
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson tells Russian Federation to 'shut up and go away'
Gavin Williamson, the UK Defense Secretary claimed that Russian Federation " should go away and shut up " as Sky News reported. But as we have seen increasingly clearly over the last few years, the reality of that is rapidly changing.
Then, before selecting a route hit the "Options" menu and change the tick to "Wheelchair accessible" under the preferred route column.
"We're looking forward to working with additional transit agencies in the coming months to bring more wheelchair accessible routes to Google Maps", Rio Akasaka, Product Manager, Google Maps, said in a blog post on Friday.
Transport for All - an organisation campaigning for more accessible transport in London - welcomed the feature, but said its success will depend on how accurate the data Google uses is.
Once that's done, Maps will then show the best possible route while taking into account the availability of mobility aids such as wheelchair accessible stops, platforms, entrances, and exits at transit stations.
"In addition to making public transportation more accessible, people around the world have been helping us add accessibility information to Google Maps", Akasaka writes.
