Button by Neatebox
With Button you can use your mobile phone or smart watch to press the buttons at pedestrian crossings. It addresses the issue of inaccessible crossings for a person with a mobility or visual impairment.
The free app allows pedestrians to focus on positioning and alignment prior to crossing the street. Because of Button, you will be able to cross the road safely and with more confidence.
The aim is to encourage people to walk more and to decrease the anxiety associated with the crossing process.
Key Benefits of Using Button
More time to cross
You will start your crossing from the edge of the pavement, which will give you more time to cross.
As your phone presses the button for you, you can focus on alignment and positioning ahead of the crossing.
With the automatic button push, you don't have to worry about locating the pole or getting near to it.

Request a Crossing
Within the Button app there is the ability to “Request a Crossing”. With this feature you can let us know about any inaccessible crossing on your daily journey. We take the request directly to the local council and let them know that individuals in their area want this service.
You can also look at crossings that have already been requested by other users and support them. Strength sometimes does come in numbers, so the more users are requesting the same crossing, the better the chances that the council installs Button!
