On Wheels is an innovative app that redefines accessibility in an urban environment for wheelchair users, people with reduced mobility and mums and dads with prams. Our handy map shows you a wide range of practical information such as the location of restaurants, bars, museums, toilets, shops, parking spots, hospitals, pharmacies and petrol stations.
A key point of the app is personalization. Every wheelchair user is unique in what he or she can do and the size of their chair. Based on the width of your wheelchair and the height of the doorstep you can take, this app will show you all the locations you can easily access.
Now you can not only find where you can enter but you can also see pictures of locations before you leave your house! As mentioned in The Lonely Planet’s Accessible Travel Online Resources :- ‘a unique feature we’ve never come across in another app-!’
