A small change to Google Maps could make a big difference for people with disabilities.

Alongside information about a business’s hours, telephone number and address, the search giant is now including details about whether or not the location has a wheelchair-accessible entrance.

“It’s a step toward providing more information about the accessibility of places around the world,” said Elizabeth Davidoff, communications manager for Google Maps.
