2018 Podcast | Enhancing Wayfinding for Aging Travelers and Persons with Disabilities

Learn the design process for developing effective pedestrian wayfinding through universal design and other wayfinding strategies.

What you will learn:
As part of its mission to develop near-term, practical solutions to problems faced by airport operators, Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) officials recently published a guidebook to help airport operators improve pedestrian wayfinding systems so passengers with disabilities and aging travelers can more easily travel independently through airports.While personal guides offer assistance at many airports, you will learn how the ACRP guidebook shows how additional efforts can be made to enhance wayfinding systems for passengers with visual impairment, mobility limitations, or short-term memory problems. Therefore, the ultimate objective of the report is to create a difference that creates change that in turn promotes independent travel.
