Andrea Nuernberger's Travel Behavior Survey

I encourage all Rolling Rains Report readers who use wheelchairs or scooters to participate in Andrea Nuernberger's Travel Behavior Survey.

I did. It didn't take long and I left with the satisfaction of knowing that I contributed to the development of this field.

Try it. You'll like it! http://research.survey.ucsb.edu/access/

When you visit new places, do you often feel like you are sailing off into the unknown? Do you wonder if you will actually reach your destination? If your answer to these questions is ‘yes’, please consider completing the online survey at http://research.survey.ucsb.edu/access/

I am a Ph. D. student at the University of California and am interested in how wheelchair and scooter users plan their trips, what type of travel information they prefer, and how they find out about accessible routes prior to travel.
I don’t use a wheelchair myself but do a great amount of traveling by public transportation with a friend who uses a power wheelchair. Our travel experiences and his attitude toward traveling have initiated this type of work, and ultimately I hope that it can improve wheelchair users’ travel confidence and interest in trip planning.

If you want to support my work, please visit the link and consider completing the survey. The survey is anonymous (unless you choose to provide an e-mail address) and takes about 20 min.

Since it is my goal to distribute the survey as widely as possible among adult wheelchair users, I welcome if you pass on the survey to other potential participants. If you have ideas about who else I could contact, please let me know.

Thank you for your time.
