Short Survey for Dallas project - please help

Postby Bane » 19 Feb 2018 03:43

Hello dear friends from Dallas, I am working on one smart city project for Dallas and for a purpose of improving traffic during traffic peaks (which is one part of this project), I would much appreciate if you could take part in this 2 minutes survey:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VLMDY3N

It's not professionally done survey...but I just wanted to get a short insight to what is your perception on this topic.

Thanx a lot in advance.

Cities have been offering services like this for free since the 70's. Years ago there were signs on the highways with a number to call. Never got much traction in DFW for multiple reasons: Multiple employment centers so everyone is going in different directions, non-standardized work schedules and many people need their car for work. Even if it saves you a couple bucks a week on gas who wants to spend 30 minutes each morning and evening driving around picking up and dropping off multiple people?

Scoop is popular in San Francisco Bay Area providing the same type service. https://www.takescoop.com/

Hi Hannibal,
yes, you're right - nobody wants to waste time picking-up and dropping off multiple people. Therefore, this service (called JobRide) avoids this. It groups people by place of living and place of working and collects them at one pick-up place and drops them all at one drop-off place. No stops in between.

Hi Utgf,
yes, scoop is similar to this, but as Hannibal mentioned above...there is significant time spent on multiple pick-ups and drop-offs.

Hi all,

thank you all who participated in this short survey. I have collected 72 responses by now. My initial goal for start was at least 100.

So, anyone else if you can invest two-three minutes of your time, I would be more than grateful! Here is the link again:

Thanx once more.
