A smartphone application helps transit users create a database of real-time information of their local transit agencies.
What is particularly intriguing about Tiramisu is the commitment to universal design that the CMU team held throughout the building process. Not only does the program strive to provide helpful information to riders with disabilities, it is also fully compatible with screen readers and other accessibility software.
The program itself also helps underscore accessibility of transit, allowing users to easily report issues, such as inaccessible bus stops, broken wheelchair securements or even more general problems about a bus, route or driver. It can also give riders a feeling of more direct contact with the agency.
