SEPTA for All Challenge Creating AR Tools
SmartCityPHL, Philadelphia’s Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, and Sustainability (OTIS), and SEPTA are leading the SEPTA for All Challenge.
This challenge sits at the intersection of transit advocacy, disability and access, and design and technology
The Challenge asks teams of innovators to create augmented reality tools that will make SEPTA (our regional public transit network) more accessible, comfortable, and welcoming for people with disabilities. More than $35,000 in cash prizes will be provided to winning entries through generous support from U.S. Ignite, Facebook Reality Labs, and Comcast.
Prospective applicants can learn more about the challenge and submit their ideas at https://phila.gov/septa-for-all. Applications are due August 20 at noon (US Eastern time).
