TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — Tulsa Transit has launched a new service that is designed for passengers with visual impairments.
With its partnership with Aira, an online service that provides live, real-time assistance to those with visual impairments, Tulsa Transit is now part of the Aira promo and designated facilities within the Aira online application for users.
A visually impaired passenger may use the app to call a live agent who will guide them to their desired bus stop by using their smartphone's camera.
The agent will help assist in reading information for passengers and help them navigate their next stop on the bus.
The Aira can be downloaded on any smartphone from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
Tulsa Transit says they hope this new service will continue to expand other future accessibility devices.
