Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of this study?

The goal of this study is to learn more about travel patterns and to promote sustainable travel habits. We aim to determine the extent in which mobile applications influence people's behaviors. Ultimately, we wish to make sustainable transportation a natural part of our daily lives.

Does the app need to be on the entire time?

Yes, although you don't need to be using it the entire time, the app needs to be open in the background in order for it to track your data. This means that you should NOT force-kill the app.

Where will my data be used?

This research study is monitored by the UCB IRB. Your personally identifiable information will only be used for the purpose of this study and will not be distributed in any way. Your data is being put to good use, helping us better the way humans travel.

We are an open source project. To learn and see how we analyze your data, you can find our code on our Github.

When will we receive our Amazon gift cards?

10 winners will be selected among participants and will be emailed shortly after the study ends. The study period will end on May 7th, 2018.
