    Yes!! This is sorely needed in the U.S. where so many things have steps, I hate steps as I have asthma and find them exhausting so even with a minor illness it is limiting.

    The phrase "wheelchair bound" is not acceptable to most people with disabilities. Use, for example, "people who use wheelchairs."

      Being 'disabled' myself, I personally like to take the 'dis' out of 'disabled' and say that I have a 'limited ability.' The joke I always make is that, "No one likes to be 'dissed,' so why put the 'dis' in 'disabled?'" I am legally blind, due to cancer I had when I was 14, and I am a strong advocate for others with limited abilities. I feel like it is my personal responsibility to help make the world more accessible and easier to function in for those with limited abilities because I have the ability to do so. In shorter terms, I like to say, "Because I have the ability, I have the responsibility!"

    Would also be useful for all tourists (who often have wheeled bags difficult to negotiate stairs with) and for older and disabled people of all kinds, not just wheelchair users.

    Would also be useful for the Bay Area's BART system! Many stations do not have wheelchair access or the elevators are often out of service.

    always good to share. NYC needs to be a lot more older folks friendly and differently abled friendly. good start! HUG!

    Thank you for covering the issue. However, I am surprised, like jenny.horsman, that you would use the term "wheelchair-bound" in your title. That term is archaic and not very respectful. For a list of appropriate and inappropriate terminology, you can check out the National Center on Disability and Journalism's Style Guide at

    sounds like a wonderful idea - we could certainly use that in Toronto too where a limited number of subway stations are accessible and i'm always horrified to get to a station and see a sign that says "sorry elevator out of service" pointing wheelchair users to a station way down the line - I wonder how their plans would be messed up. I was surprised to see you using wheelchair-bound in your title though - wheel chair user seems not only more accurate but also more respectful!

    Hmmm...we could sure use this in the D/FW metroplex. Awesome app! Will contribute to this, Anthony. Thx!
