How Can Tactile Warning Surfaces and ADA Solutions Improve Transit?
People are on the go daily. Many often rely on public transportation services like trains, subways, and buses. Getting around can be more difficult if you have some sort of travel-limiting disability and have to rely upon some type of medical device for assistance.
Travel-limiting disabilities require the use of walkers, wheelchairs, crutches, seeing-eye dogs, canes, and so on. Navigating transit stations can be challenging as there are often several obstacles one must overcome. These could include turnstiles, platform edges, elevators, escalators, stairs, ramps, and more.
How ADA Solutions can help improve transit and people with travel-limiting disabilities is with our tactile warning surfaces. Our warning surfaces provide feedback for those with visual impairments. The surface tiles can be used in several locations, as well as for guidance to help people safely get where they need to go.
Additionally, warning surfaces also help provide visual feedback for people without visual impairments. They can help get the attention of someone who is distracted and prevent them from walking off a platform or falling down a flight of stairs.
