Another hot topic for the CCB at the time was Denver’s RTD (Regional Transportation District), the public transport system. They cited several things that RTD was doing right, such as a uniform layout which puts all northbound tracts to the east and all southbound tracks to the west. However, they also cited areas for improvement; they suggested a better, more logical layout, Braille, and succinct audio instructions for the buttons on the kiosk where passengers purchase tickets.
Furthermore, RTD had proposed route changes which would affect the students’ ability to get from the apartment building most of them live in to the school. As a result of their concerns, we decided to launch our project during a public event at an RTD station. We brought all of the materials we had designed, and allowed the students to demonstrate our website and read our Braille collateral to the audience.
