Tube map for colourblind people wins design award

A redesigned tube map aimed at helping colourblind people get across London has won an award.

If you have difficulty using the London tube map, either in print or in other apps, this could be the answer.

The app makes it easier viewing for people with colourblindness, and other vision impairments such as cataracts, loss of contrast sensitivity and myopia.

The Transport for London accessible apps competition saw 194 entries, which were tested by disability charities AbilityNet and the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

Leon Daniels, managing director of surface transport at TfL, said: “TfL will be using the lessons learnt from this competition to help support developers in their app development and to promote well designed apps using TfL information. It is an important step forward in encouraging ‘mainstream’ Apps to meet the needs of all passengers.”
