Lansing is "AbleVu Accessible"

Lansing has the honor of being the first city to be certified in the newly launched AbleVu Accessible Cities program. This program is created by a local business, AbleVu, with the intention of providing virtual walk-thru tours of the inside of public spaces for accessibility and marketing.

“The purpose of this virtual tour hosting site is so people with disabilities can explore the city before they visit,” CEO and co-founder of AbleVu, Meegan Winters, explained. “This way, people know what cities they can at least get basic information from with these tours without calling. Exploring these sites ahead of time with the virtual tour hosting site relieves stress and anxiety when traveling, not just for people with disabilities but for everyone.”
