Have you ever been frustrated because you cannot find a parking spot and keep searching forever? Now you have a chance to contribute to a parking study, which could improve parking policy to make your parking easier and faster. All you need to do is to play a fun virtual parking game, that we call iCity Park.
To participate and enjoy the game, please click the following link and download the application (virus-free):
University of Toronto and OCAD University have collaborated to design iCity Park to learn about people’s parking behaviour in different situations. You are asked to answer a few questions about yourself and then play the iCity Park game. It takes about 15 minutes and you can quit at any time. The game should be played on a computer, since smartphone screens are too small.
The information you provide will be saved in a database with at least one hundred other people’s, and will be used for analysis of parking behaviour, by our research team only.
Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and you may decline to answer any question. All your responses are anonymous. None of the responses will be connected to identifying information. Our research team will publish and present summary results only and will keep individual data private and secure. We will summarize the research outcomes on our website www.uttri.utoronto.ca once the study is complete.
If you have any questions about this survey, or have difficulty accessing or completing the survey, please contact Bo Wang by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or cell at 647-936-5757.
Note: This survey has been approved in accordance with the University of Toronto Research Ethics Board, which can be contacted at email@example.com or 416-946-3273.
