The 360-Access mission is to map the unique existing accessibility features of public spaces connecting people with disabilities (PWDs), their families, friends, caregivers and associates to objective information.
Anyone can write a review about an experience, while objective information just tells us what exists. For example: Based on ADA guidelines, the brunch café at 123 Any Street is open from 6AM to 3PM, is close to public transportation, there are two accessible parking spots in the public lot next door, the entrance meets ADA specifications, there is ADA accessible table seating, the staff will read menus to visually impaired guests, service animals are welcome and one part-time staff member is fluent in ASL. Unfortunately, the single bathroom is not ADA accessible.
That’s 360-Access objectivity. This gives 360-Access consumers dependable decision-making data when choosing where to make their next purchase. And, yes, people can write reviews of the food and their experience!
End Result: Accurate, objective, searchable information about our world that helps the PWD community conveniently find places to live, work, eat, play or travel.
360-Access's goal is to educate businesses and consumers; capture and share standardized accessibility information; and, help revolutionize how members of the disability community find restaurants, lodging or buy goods, services and products.
As an accreditation service, 360-Access helps business sponsors complete a detailed survey of their unique acessibility features. We employ members of the people with disabilities community through our partnerships with disability organizations to verify the collected data. 360-Access makes a subset of that information available to visitors and members to assist them in finding truly accessible goods and services based on search requirements they choose to enter.
