Participants Needed for Non-Motorized Travel Study

We received an email from a Virginia Tech researcher asking that we help them find participants for a study of non-motorized travel behavior in the DC Metro area. Participants will receive a $25 gift card. Use of an Android phone is required. For more information about the study and to sign up, visit

Participants Needed:
Mood State in Transport Environments 
About the Study
  • This pilot study explores the relationship between transportation mode, trip purpose, route, built environment, and mood. 
  • We use Daynamica mobile app (Android only) to measure travel behavior and mood after each trip. 
  • A trip is a movement between two locations (beyond the building boundary) to accomplish an activity, such as commuting, shopping, socializing, recreation, etc. 
How to Participate
An Android smartphone is required for this study. 

Step 1: 1-2 minutes 
  • Download and install Daynamica.
  • Turn on your WiFi & GPS.
Step 2: 8-10 minutes
Answer a short entry questionnaire on Qualtrics (embedded in the app). 

Step 3: 1-2 minutes/trip for 7 days

Answer the questions that pop up in the app after you finish each trip. Upload all trips after a week.

Your Benefits
  • You will be able to review your miles traveled, number of trips completed, and how your mood changed throughout the week. 
  • A $25 Amazon gift card if you (1) complete the entry questionnaire on Qualtrics, (2) answer the trip survey for at least five trips, and (3) upload all the trip data for one week.
