What is Wheely?

Wheely is an application designed to help wheelchair users better navigate the New York City Subway system as well as provide a useful guide to accessible places in specific neighborhoods. Wheely features accessible subway maps licensed by the MTA®, specific directions and maps to subway elevators and reviews based on local accessible places. Wheely is founded by Anthony Driscoll, a Parsons New School MFA Design and Technology candidate, who was inspired to create this app through his travels with his father who is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Anthony hopes to establish more support of his app through various disability focused organizations.
