Wheel The Ground

Wheel The Ground

Through the collaboration between DPA and SmartBFA, our Wheel The Ground sessions actively collect data and map out accessible paths at various locations in Singapore. This data helps identify routes that may be more accessible for wheelchair users.

Quote by Theresa Goh that reads, "Wheel the Ground is an empowering community initiative led by the Disabled People's Association and championed by you! Our mission is to map out wheelchair-accessible routes across our city, ensuring freedom and inclusivity for all mobility-impaired individuals. We believe in the strength of community and the power of technology to open up a world where everyone can move freely."
Join us in promoting barrier-free access in Singapore!

Many individuals with mobility challenges may avoid leaving their homes due to a lack of confidence in navigating their surroundings. Our initiative empowers them, encouraging ease and confidence in their daily commute.

In these mapping sessions, participants also have the opportunity to experience the perspective of wheelchair users. The collected data, including areas lacking accessibility features will be shared with town planners and venue owners for necessary actions.

Using the Smart BFA app on your mobile phone, join us as we step out to map accessible routes during our 90-minute Wheel the Ground sessions.
