Making Cities Accessible

We are committed to providing accessible and inclusive mobility solutions to people across the disability spectrum, empowering them to confidently travel around their cities using public transit, and maximizing their potential for work, education, and social life.

This commitment means that we’ve built accessibility capabilities into the Moovit App and our White Label MaaS App.

Visually Impaired/Blind VoiceOver TalkBack Features

Visually Impaired/Blind and Illiterate or Learning Disabled

Moovit for iOS and Android

Moovit has optimized every screen across the app for VoiceOver and TalkBack technologies (screen-reading) on iOS and Android devices. With this enhanced accessibility integration, users use gestures to navigate through screen elements and focus on them. Once the focus is on an element, including buttons and labels, the VoiceOver / TalkBack feature reads aloud the text that appears on it. Specifically, with Moovit’s “Live Directions” feature, the user gets step-by-step GPS-style guidance for their journey and even receives alerts when the bus is arriving or “Get Off Alerts” to get ready before they’ve reached their destination stop. 

 

Moovit for Web

Moovit for Web is fully compatible with World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level.

Ambulatory or Mobility Impaired

Moovit’s proprietary multi-modal trip planner calculates trips that are wheelchair/stroller accessible. The information is displayed inside the Moovit app and our White Label MaaS Apps.

In certain cities, Moovit also indicates which stations are wheelchair accessible and specific approaching lines that are wheelchair accessible.

Near Vision Problems (Presbyopia)

Our research indicates that 20% of Moovit users magnify/enlarge the size of their iPhone text. Moovit now supports “Dynamic Type,” providing users with the ability to increase font size. Moovit’s development team made product improvements to ensure the content and layout on the app screens do not break and the reading experience is consistent. This is among the most common problems adults develop between the ages of 41 to 60 (source: American Optometric Association). 

colorblind feature

Color Blindness

Moovit displays information properly to users who are color blind. Color is never the sole way of distinguishing objects. Moovit uses differences in brightness to make colored regions distinct and tests the interfaces in grayscale to confirm that they are still usable. About 8% of males and 0.5% of females are colorblind in some fashion (source: National Eye Institute).

 

hand motor features

Hand motor impairments

The user interface of the Moovit app and our White Label apps was optimized to address specific needs of users with hand motor impairments, including placing key navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen, increasing cell height, and increasing buttons hot-zones.
