SEPTA for All: Augmenting Transit with Augmented Reality

Challenging innovators to create augmented reality tools to make public transit more accessible for people with disabilities.

Official event information


Monday, June 28 - Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2021

Philadelphia’s public transit system should be accessible to everyone. While SEPTA continues to make improvements to stations and vehicles to improve experiences for passengers with disabilities, technology can play an important role.

We’re challenging teams of developers and designers to create augmented reality tools that will make transportation more accessible for people with disabilities. More than $35,000 in cash prizes will be provided to winning entries through generous support from U.S. Ignite, Facebook Reality Labs, and Comcast. To learn more, read the challenge rules.

We’re also coordinating with SEPTA’s ongoing work on signage and wayfinding. Winning entries have the potential to be incorporated into the Wayfinding Master Plan.

This challenge is being administered by SmartCityPHL, the Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, and Sustainability (OTIS), and SEPTA.


Nothing from January 22, 2022 to April 22, 2022.
