Cycle hire in London good or bad?

Postby anwyhg » 4 Jan 2019, 11:05am

Hi everyone! I’m a third year geography student at Newcastle university and I’m conducting research on cycling patterns in London, relating to Santander cycles (Boris Bikes). I would be very grateful if anyone has a couple of minutes to complete my anonymous online survey relating to their role in London’s cycling community! Thanks.

Javascript required so you will only get answers from users of less secure browsers.

Questions can't be copy-pasted here which is annoying and I won't be retyping them in full.

First question asks whether there is "good availability". I don't know. I could only tell you what I experience.

Second question asks frequency of use, but there's nothing between "one or more times a week" and "once a month" which seems a bit of a gap.

Rest of it seems OK as far as it goes. Hope the above comments help improve future surveys!

Thanks for taking a look at the survey!
The questions are of course all subjective so whatever your answer, the data still helps.
With regard to the frequency of use Question, it's a tough one, maybe a few times a month then once a month might be better.
I will let you know the data trends when the survey generates a valid number of respondents!!

Have just run through it. One question I couldn't answer: what would make you use them more (than a few times a year). I use them if useful when I'm in that London but that's just not very often!
