New filter suggestions "Accessible by Public Transport"

Huge fan of THS! <3 After using THS for a couple times now, would love to hear our fellow sitters’ thoughts on new features ideas to improve the platform’s experience?

Personally, would love to have a search filter for “Accessible through public transport”. Since my partner and I don’t drive, would be really helpful to have a list of sits that are non-driver friendly. We’re currently plugging in every town on Google map to make sure they’re accessible.

I know there’s a filter for “sitter needs a car”, but I think it’s quite different.

Anyone has experienced similar situations?

Yes, I have been asking for this for a while. It takes forever to go through all the sits in the UK looking for ones that don’t need a car :slight_smile:

Exactly :slight_smile: No sure if it’s a regional thing, perhaps everyone in the US owns a car. But in the UK I’m finding it hard to verify if the homes are accessible. Some owners are nice enough to share the closest train/bus station which is a life/time saver!

Would be superb if this could be an option for the filter!

Yes, that would be useful. I agree with all of that.

There’s an earlier thread on this topic, under Car needed?

I agree with your idea, but would also like to see ‘car not needed’ or ‘walkable neighbourhood’ (although ability to walk varies for everyone, I realize). It would make it so much easier to screen listings for suitability. I’m not going to try and convince a ‘car needed’ person that it may not be the case. I just skip over those listings now, even though I may miss out on what could have been a match.
