Often people who want to “retire” from driving have difficulty transitioning to public transit and become dependent on friends and family for rides. A technology that helps people feel more secure about riding transit. This would also be helpful for people with cognitive disabilities, especially people who are on the autism spectrum. It would be helpful to have a technology that informed riders when to expect the bus/train in real time, know when they have reached their destination, have a safety plan and contacts in case of emergency.
