CitiRroller was developed by Papa Products, LLC, designers of innovative products to simplify the lives of modern parents.
CitiRoller is a smartphone guide for individuals navigating cities and towns on wheels, which recently debuted in the Apple iTunes Store. Developed in partnership with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, the nation’s leading paralysis advocacy organization, CitiRoller seeks to provide cutting-edge technology to an underserved community. Utilizing the latest app technology, expert and user-generated listings and a modern, clean interface, CitiRoller makes finding essential accessible locations a breeze.
“We are very excited about our partnership with CitiRoller as their tool offers an incredible service to our community,” said Maggie Goldberg, Reeve Foundation spokesperson. “Unlike any other app of its kind on the market, CitiRoller offers listings for wheelchair accessible public transportation, restrooms, restaurants, cafes, and wheelchair repair and supply locations.”
CitiRoller is fully scalable for national and international use. At launch, data will be available for Boston, with preview data for Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Chicago and New York City. The CitiRoller team will immediately be adding to the database of locations for these and other cities. Locations will be available to users without having to update software.
A mom and dad in Boston, MA, who were frustrated with the lack of accessibility information available, both for individuals using wheelchairs and for parents like themselves pushing strollers, developed CitiRoller and its companion tool, CitiStroller. Their goal is to create a tool that can provide accessibility and ease for wheelchair users, wherever they are.
