Rail Reach Gives Stand up Commuters a Hand

by Hazel Chua

For a lot of people, commuting can be quite exhausting, especially if all the seats are taken. There’s nothing wrong with standing up, because there’s the rail for passengers to grab on to for added support… unless the rail itself is covered in slimy stuff (ew), is out of reach or just too high for comfort.

The solution? Rail Reach.

Rail Reach1

The Rail Reach is a folding handle that attaches to the handrail, so you can keep your hands off of the latter, which thousands of hands have already touched and grabbed before you. If you’re on the short side, it also helps by giving you an extension of sorts, so you don’t have to stand on your tiptoes or reach too far to grab the handrail.

Rail Reach

The idea to create the Rail Reach came to Justin Choy after he dealt with his fair share of problems while he was using public transportation.

Rail Reach is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $15(USD) will get you the standard folding version of it.
