Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind is pleased to announce that Phase 1 of ClickAndGo DC Metro is officially complete following the launch of the “ClickAndGo Wayfinding” app, available now in the Apple store. The app, which is free to download, includes over 110 routes in and around the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro station. This new personal navigation app is the first of its kind in any public transit system in the United States.
Phase 2 will include customized low vision maps of Gallery Place and other stations, in addition to the implementation of iBeacons in select stations. The iBeacons will be installed at strategic locations within the station and will interact with the app to alert the user when they have reached a specific point in their journey. ClickAndGo DC Metro can also be accessed online at www.clb.org/clickandgo or by phone by calling 877-607-3689.
