Most Innovative Real-Time Passenger Information Initiative


What the judges said: OASTH have successfully developed a passenger information service for the elderly and visually impaired. By targeting the minority groups (partially sighted, the elderly), who are often forgotten in the rush to create apps, this is a highly laudable programme. This is a fantastic example of how technology can be used for social inclusion and to cater to a large and important demographic.
