Lyft and Aptiv have partnered with the National Federation of the Blind to run trails which will focus on low vision and blind riders. Lyft indicates that the partnership will look to provide mobility for all, through its program in Las Vegas.
Features of the program will be accessibility focused, like Braille guides for riders, which provide route information to the user, as well as information regarding the Aptiv vehicles. Information about the vehicles includes descriptions of the sensors and other technologies. To create the Braille guide, Lyft worked with LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, this is in an effort to inform riders as much as possible.
Lyft notes that its work with Aptiv and the National Federation of the Blind focuses on enhancing mobility for those who have had to face barriers with respect to transportation.
