Columbus Ohio is implementing a pilot program using a smartphone app called WayFinder to help people with intellectual disabilities use the city bus system. The program is run by Smart Columbus and Ohio State University. The app allows caregivers to find a bus route and add in instructions and notifications for the individual rider. They can add photos of drop-off locations, reminders that are triggered when the destination is close and walking routes to and from the bus stops.
