Disability campaigners have welcomed the launch of a new feature on Google Maps designed to help wheelchair-users find step-free routes around London. The tech giant has launched an extra filter on their Maps service enabling users to select a ‘wheelchair accessible’ option when looking up public transport directions around the city. Transport for All, which campaigns for disabled access across London’s transport network, said the option represented a “big step forward”.
