Hi,

We're looking for people who ride the bus in Staten Island (including any express X buses), the M34/M34A in Manhattan, or the B63 in Brooklyn for a 60-minute interview at a coffeeshop near your commute. The goal of the study to help evaluate a tool that tells you where the next bus is.

If you are interested in participating please complete this brief questionnaire at the link below:

Thanks for your interest!

Most importantly, who's buying the coffee?

Sorry, I should have mentioned that:

We're OpenPlans, a technology non-profit helping the MTA with some of the software for Bus Time. We'd like to find participants who ride the bus in Staten Island interested in participating in a one-hour usability study interview at a coffeeshop near your place of work or home to discuss MTA Bus Time.

During the interview we would observe you using MTA Bus Time on your phone (and optionally a laptop and/or tablet if you have one). With your consent, the computer screens and your voice and hands may be recorded but all other personal identifying information will be kept confidential.

A $25 token of appreciation in the form of an American Express or Visa gift card can be provided for your time. We can also buy the coffee.

We're currently only seeking a few participants. If you're interested please complete this form:

https://docs.google.com/a/openplans.org/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFFmd0daY3djUzFDY01pV3JDQVRzM0E6MA#gid=0

Also if you live in Staten Island or work in Manhattan near the end of a bus route, please let us know in the form.

Would it be possible to get the $25 in cash?

Or even better, in the form of a $25 Pay-Per-Ride MetroCard or maybe even a weekly unlimited? I can sure use the extra rides.

A 7-day weekly Unlimited Metrocard can be provided as a token of appreciation for your time for a 45 minute to 1 hour long interview near your commute.

We're still looking more participants who ride the bus regularly in Staten Island, the B63 in Brooklyn, or the M34/M34A in Manhattan, so please complete the survey below if you're interested in participating:

You could always take the $25 and spend it on the MetroCard, so the cash is still better.

"A 7-day weekly Unlimited Metrocard can be provided as a token of appreciation for your time for a 45 minute to 1 hour long interview near your commute."

So we don't have to meet at St. George, right? We could meet at any stop along our commute?
