ACCESS TO MASS TRANSIT FOR BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED TRAVELERS

Access to Mass Transit for Blind and Visually Impaired Travelers, a new book published by the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), examines how transit systems around the world have addressed the needs of travelers with visual impairments. Among mass transit systems highlighted in the book are California's Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), London's Department of Transport, Singapore's Metropolitan Rapid Transit, Vancouver's Skytrain and Tokyo's Transit Authority.
