James Tyack, a software developer at King of Prussia-based Health Market Science, pays attention to accessibility issues, as NBC10 reported. It’s why he built Unlock Philly, an app that shows the SEPTA subway and high-speed line stops that are wheelchair-accessible and have elevators.
The app also shows wheelchair-accessible restaurants and shops near those SEPTA stations, as well as broken elevator reports. He began building the app at last year’s Apps for Philly Transit. It’s also a project with Code for Philly, the city’s local Code for America arm.-30-
