Google Maps will tell you if a place is wheelchair-accessible

December 18, 2016

Google Maps is getting a new feature. It will now show you if a location is wheelchair accessible.

The Google team took about a year to put together the accessibility guidelines. The team asked people questions about places they recently visited and whether or not it is wheelchair accessible.

Not only will the new feature be useful for people in a wheelchair, but also others with disabilities, parents with a baby in a pram, and the elderly.

To see for yourself whether or not a location is wheelchair accessible, just look up a location in Maps, hit the description, and check under the "amenities tab."
