Street Users Surveys: Lombard and King-Embarcadero

Dear Reader,

I am conducting research for a doctoral dissertation on the topic of urban arterial design and use through the Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute at Curtin University of Technology (http://sustainability.curtin.edu.au/graduate_students_current.cfm)
in Perth, Western Australia under the supervision of Professor Jeff Kenworthy. My study includes evaluation and comparison of five to six block segments on each of six Bay Area streets, including two in San Francsico: King St.-The Embarcadero from 3rd Street near ATT Park to Brannon and Lombard Street from Broderick to Fillmore.

I am interested in learning the perspectives of those who use these streets once in a while or regularly. To facilitate this, I have created two online Street Users Surveys, which can be filled in and sent in 5-10 minutes. If you use one or both of these streets, I would greatly appreciate your assistance in filling out the following surveys:

Lombard Street (between Fillmore and Broderick) -

King-The Embarcadero (between 3rd at ATT Park and Brannon ) -

To join a focus group on one of these streets, please contact me at sustainablestreets@gmail.com

Thanks in advance!
