Share Your Experience as a New York Bicycle Commuter

12:50 PM EST on March 7, 2008

Attention New Yorkers who bike to work: Mathew Ides, a masters student at Hunter College Department of Urban Affairs & Planning, is surveying bike commuters in the city to see how they view the built environment. You can take the survey here. Ides has also set up a website, Hubs and Spokes, to provide more information about his research. Here's what he has to say about his survey:

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.
