Have you ever waited for an hour at a corner for a bus only to be told the bus stop was across the street? Do you wish there could be an easy way for you to know the number of stops there are between one BART station and another station? Would you like to know if there is a bus shelter available at each of the bus stops you’ll be using on a rainy day? Would you like an easier way to find out what buses you can catch at a particular stop? If so, the LightHouse has good news for you.
We are developing, and will distribute, “strip maps” which will present concise information about selected Bay Area transit routes in Braille or large print. The strip maps will be developed for BART, Muni, SamTrans and Caltrain routes.
Help us choose the routes we map. We need your help to select additional transit routes for which we may produce strip maps in the future. Currently, our highest priority will be to make strip maps for Muni and Samtrans routes, particularly routes serving the Market Street corridor or routes linking to BART or Caltrain, but your recommendations about routes throughout the Bay Area are needed.
Just go to this easy online survey to give us your recommendations. All survey respondents will be entered into a drawing to win a $75 gift certificate for our Adaptations store. For more information about this survey and about the strip map project please call Frank Welte at 415-694-7363 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
