Quick survey-- Please help me complete my senior thesis!

Original post made by Berkeleystudent, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Feb 7, 2012

Greetings, folks! I'm a senior at Berkeley, and also a lifelong Pleasanton resident (Amador, class of '08). I will be graduating this May with a B.S. in Environmental Sciences, and my graduation hinges upon completion of a senior project...

The aim of my project is to determine the variables that influence how people decide to travel downtown-- by car, bike, bus, or on foot. The questions are very straightforward-- mostly ranking variables on a scale of 1-5 and multiple choice. The entire survey should take about 4 minutes to complete.

The survey is here: Web Link

I will be conducting the survey in person as well, so you might see me downtown with a clipboard and a smile, but I (hope) that this method is easier on both parties...

If you have any questions, I can be reached at Thank you for your time!

I drive to one block before Main ... walk the Farmer's market ... go to the library ... go back and look at the dogs ... walk to my car ... go to a garage sale and hang out my back yard for the rest of the day .... for some reason I think that's an exciting life.

I would enjoy walking to downtown, but don't generally have the time. I just filled out your survey - good luck with the thesis!

A thousand pardons for re-animating a zombie thread....

Thanks to everyone who's responded so far! I've gotten a great set of results, and I especially appreciate that people took the time to really provide detailed responses. If you're interested, here's a map that I've generated based on preliminary results: Web Link

I'm still in need of more data, so if you haven't filled it out yet, I will always welcome more responses!

Thanks so much, folks.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
