Title of Major Work: Sydney Trains accessibility information app

“My Major Design Project is a mobile application that provides users with information on the degree of accessibility infrastructure available at Sydney Train stations,” Jak said.

“The app is targeted towards people with physical disabilities and people using mobility aids such as wheelchairs and crutches that restrict their access to transport services.

“My aim is to improve the experience of using the Sydney Train service in response to the lack of infrastructure across most of Sydney’s stations. With the introduction of my app I would hope to empower those limited by their physical conditions and disabilities in making informed choices on where they would like to travel with greater convenience.”
