Visually impaired face challenges on public transport

A recent SMU study found that 79 per cent of people who are legally blind strongly agree or agree that the transport system here needs to be more inclusive for them to travel and get around more efficiently. "This is significantly outstripped by a whopping 92 per cent of the general public who also strongly agreed or agreed," said SMU Senior Lecturer of Statistics Rosie Ching, who headed the study to raise awareness about the needs of the blind. Ms Ching conducted the study with 95 SMU undergraduates as part of an introductory statistics module.
