Finalists in the Innovate@BU Transit Challenge have been selected and the challenge is moving onto Round 2. In partnership with Boston University, MABVI is sponsoring a student and alumni design challenge to solve community transit problems that will benefit society at large–and particularly the older adult and the blind and low vision communities.

"I'm thrilled to see the progress the students are making. They are thinking strategically and inclusively, designing tools and plans that accommodate more people,” said Sassy Outwater-Wright, Executive Director of MABVI.

The finalists chosen in January are continuing to work on detailed solutions with guidance from mentors and informative workshops, In April, the finalist teams will present their solutions during Innovation Week at BU. The winning team will be awarded $10,000 and possible opportunities for support as they continue working on their solution coming to market as a viable product or tool.
