This paper provides a strategy planning to design a new portable LED-display system, named Travel Kit, based on an extensive survey and demand function analysis among visually impaired persons in Taipei, Taiwan. Accessibility to take a bus, ability to travel and Dilemma of daily affair are three measures to evaluate performance of Travel kit. Using two samples T-test to compare the number of successfully boarding the requested bus before and after employing Travel Kit, it shows that Travel Kit significantly improves not only in boarding a bus, but also increasing the ability of independence for individual visual impairment to take transit in Taipei.
