Wanted: NYC Bicycle Commuters

The staff at Bikecommuters.com was recently contacted by Matthew Ides, graduate student and researcher at Hunter College. He is conducting a survey that looks at the “imageability of the Daily Bicycle Commuter in New York City” :

In a city that is dominated by the automobile I want
to find out how its residents who use other modes of
transportation actually view the built environment.
While all forms of transit modes could be studied, I
find that this small minority (0.5% of residents who
commute by bike) would make for an interesting study.
The sole purpose is to record the subjective
perspective (mental image/imageability) New York City
bicycle commuters have of the build environment, good
or bad, through a survey. The survey is 23 questions
and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. No
compensation will be provided for participation in
this study.

If you are a commuter in New York City and would like to participate in this survey, point your browser to the Hub and Spokes survey site, located HERE.
