12:45 pm: Paid Opportunity to Help Improve MTC Wayfinding and Mapping Standards (online)

Jun 23

LightHouse is partnering with the Regional Mapping and Wayfinding Project to host an online community workshop on June 23 from 12:45 pm to 3:45 pm. We’d love to hear from community members who are blind, visually impaired, low-income, and people of color who use public transit or could be impacted by a transportation project.

What is the workshop all about?

As part of the Bay Area Transit Transformation Action Plan the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and other stakeholders are committed to a range of projects for public transit’s post-pandemic recovery and long-term improvement. One of the actions identified was to “Fund and finalize regional mapping and wayfinding standards for application across all operator service areas”. This intends to ensure transit services are easier to navigate and more convenient for both new and existing riders.

Now is the time for our communities’ voices to be heard and for us to help shape the future of this work.

Individuals or households can sign up for this three-hour workshop hosted over the Zoom or phone, and each person who participates in the session is paid $100 via Visa gift card.

Please plan to be available for the entire three hours scheduled for the workshop. There will be a break during the workshop. This workshop has a maximum of 20 participants, and we will have a waitlist for last-minute cancellations.

RSVP online for the workshop by June 22. If you have questions, please contact Sheri Albers at 415-694-7331 or
