Participants for study into new ways of delivering personalised real time travel information on the London Underground

27 September 2012

We are investigating new ways of delivery personalised real time travel information on the London underground.

You are invited to participate in this study by filling out two short questionnaires and completing a journey in the Underground while timing yourself.

The journey should be taken on Monday 1 October between 6:30-9:30am.

The Journey must be on the Victoria Line with no interchange in either direction. Both the exit and entry station must be on the Victoria Line.

To take part you need to complete the following three steps:

1. Complete this first survey before taking the journey. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/76SNY6X

2. Then take the journey on the date that you have selected, and time yourself from the ticket barrier of the entry station to the ticket barrier of the exit station. This can be done using either a stopwatch or a wrist watch.

3. After the journey, please fill out this second questionnaire. To complete this questionnaire you need to click (add new item) which is located below the entries other participants have added. https://sp.cege.ucl.ac.uk/Lists/Tube/Public%20View.aspx

At random one participant will be picked that completed all three steps and have £20 put on their Oyster Cards. 

Thank you for your help. If you have any questions please contact Emily on e.touche.11@ucl.ac.uk
