About Accessibility Information
When information is available, Transit displays whether vehicles and stops are wheelchair accessible.
Enable Accessibility Information

- At the top of the screen, tap the middle slider icon.
- Under "My transit options", select "Show accessibility info".
- Moreover, to surface results in our trip planner that are exclusively accessible, select "Show accessible trips first".
Identify Accessible Departures and Stops
From the main screen, you can distinguish:
- A. Whether the approaching vehicle coming to that stop is accessible.
- B. Whether the closest station or stop to your location is accessible.
The route details screen indicates which stops along the route are wheelchair accessible.
The schedule screen indicates whether the upcoming departures from your closest stop are accessible vehicles.
Navigate your Trip with VoiceOver and TalkBack
For blind or visually impaired users, Transit is compatible with screen readers like VoiceOver (iOS) and TalkBack (Android). To navigate your screen, select an element, wait for it to be read aloud, then double-tap to select it. Information such as route names, stops, and trip duration are condensed into clear sentences to optimize your experience.
You can also tap GO to navigate with step-by-step audio instructions throughout your journey, including when your stop is approaching.
