“Buses is a significant public transportation with over million rides taken per day on average. With the number of visually impaired increase, it is important that the bus facilities can meet more user’s need.
Eg, When visually impaired board a bus independently; they need help from surrounding people to tell them when to alight. However, they still will encounter the problem of alight at the wrong destination that is very difficult for them to find their way back again.
E-Journey is easy to use device that is attached to the bus pole to help the visually impaired people to know quickly which bus-stop to alight so they can travel without any worry.
E- journey also offers another value to the external user – TOURISTS.
It provides a convenient way to let them quickly know on where to alight.”
