1. Ride Hailing Companies' Drivers Questionnaire

Page1 / 1
 
100% of survey complete.

You are invited to participate in a research project to find a better solution to decreasing the unloaded miles and the wait times that drivers incur as cost when driving for TNCs. By finding a solution, TNCs may use less drivers to give more rides, and drivers may earn more per hour and operate at much lower cost. The results will be used to complete a doctoral degree research project and used by Zyleck Technologies in its Lymousine brand of a new TNC model to demonstrate the validity of the findings. This online survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete. The survey is part of a George Washington University (GWU) Doctorial Degree Program research and is being sponsored by Zyleck Technologies, Inc., - the owner of Lymousine.

Participation is voluntary, and responses will be kept confidential to the degree permitted by the technology being used. You must be 21 or older to participate in this research. Your identity will be kept private and your records will be kept confidential and will not be released and or sold without your consent except as required by law.  You have the option to not respond to any questions that you choose. Submission of the survey will be interpreted as your informed consent to participate and that you affirm that you are at least 21 years of age. If you agree to take part in this research study, your name will be placed in a raffle to win one of three prizes - 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place prizes as an incentive for participating in this study. Your decision to take part in this research study is entirely voluntary. However, you will need to complete the research in its entirety to qualify for entry in the raffle and winners will only be announced if there are a minimum of 1,000 completed entries. First prize winner will win a $100 Amazon given card, second prize winner will win a $50 Amazon gift card, and third place winner will win a $25 Amazon gift card.

If you have any questions about the research, please contact the Principal Investigator, Dr. Thomas Mazzuchi, via email at mazzu@email.gwu.edu and or the Doctoral Research Student, Michael Treasure, via email at treasure@gwu.edu.  If you have any questions regarding your rights as a research subject, contact the GWU Institutional Review Board (IRB) at ohrirb@gwu.edu.
