To make public transit work for the differently abled, Google on Friday introduced "wheelchair accessible" routes in Maps at major metropolitan transit centres around the world. The feature is rolling out in London, New York, Tokyo, Mexico City, Boston and Sydney. In city centres, buses and trains, often the best way to get around presents a challenge for people who use wheelchairs or with other mobility needs. "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.
