EARN $50 FOR PARTICIPATING IN NEW DELAWARE VALLEY BIKE-ROUTING SOFTWARE TESTING!

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is seeking participants for a focus group on a proposed bike-routing software set to launch in Spring 2021. 

The new technology, called Ruti, allows bicyclists to receive text messages to their smart phones with maps showing options for getting from one address to another all while using safer (lower-stressed) streets and real-time traffic information!  Focus groups are forming to help make Ruti as user-friendly and intuitive as possible.  Specifically, participants will be asked how they could imagine using the new software and to determine what types of marketing messages would be most persuasive. 

All sessions are virtual and last about 90 minutes.  Once completed, DVRPC will provide $50 in compensation.  For more info, please visit: http://www.dvrpc.org/focusgroups
