RouteShout: An Accessible Mobile App for Public Transportation Riders

RouteShout is a mobile app that can help public transportation riders more easily look up the location of nearby bus stops and track how close their bus is to their stop.  The app is free, available on Apple and Android phones, and (according to MDTAP testers) is fully accessible with Apple’s VoiceOver.

The app uses your phone’s location services to find your location and to generate a list of bus stops near you. When you select a bus stop, it shows you which buses stop at that stop, and how many minutes away each bus is from the stop . If you are not sure which bus route you need to take, the app lets you see route details, which lists all of that bus’s stops on the route. And, if you tend to use certain bus stops more frequently, the app lets you save a list of your “favorite” stops.

Riders in Maryland and the DC area can use the app to track Maryland MTA, UM Shuttle, DC Circulator, and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. If you travel out of Maryland on a regular basis, the app lets you search for other transit agencies and switch between the different agencies. The app is available for use with at least 175 transit agencies in the United States and Canada.
