Researchers in Dr. Ben Mortenson’s lab are interested in the transportation and cycle lane experiences of cyclists or wheeled mobility device users (e.g. users of manual or power wheelchairs, and wheeled mobility scooters). Cycling is gaining prominence as a sustainable method of transportation, yet wheeled mobility devices are not often imagined as part of the cycling network. This study aims to learn more about how users with disabilities navigate pathways with different devices, and how to improve cycling infrastructure for a variety of users including those with mobility devices.
Why should you participate in this study?
Your participation can help inform potential changes to cycle lane infrastructure in local municipalities, which may improve transportation for people with disabilities.
