making pedestrian navigation
The world isn't built for everyone.
We’re glad you’re here to take this journey with us! Together, we are advocating to increase pedestrian accessibility. Unfortunately, the world wasn’t built for everyone: a step in front of a coffee shop, an intersection with no curb cuts, and more… Able-bodied people don’t usually pay attention to these obstacles, but they can make navigation practically impossible for many people. 

But it’s never too late! There are many things, small and large, that you can do to make the world a more inclusive and accessible place.

Why should you care about accessibility?

For people with disabilities
For older adults
For ourselves
61 million adults in the US live with disabilities, which means 1 out of 4 American adults are affected by accessibility issues. While you may not be disabled, your neighbors, co-workers and fellow community members may be and deserve to live as comfortably as you do.
Think about your parents or grandparents, who are getting older and might start to experience mobility challenges. It’s important to understand and be prepared to help them face the coming difficulties.
Accessibility benefits everyone in the community. Everyone ages, is at risk for an accident or disease that could impact mobility, and occasionally experiences temporary impairments that can cause similar difficulties. These might include wanting an elevator while using crutches, needing a curb cut while pushing a stroller, or requiring more time to cross a street with heavy bags.
