Forth is surveying and collecting data on rideshare drivers in Portland, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Phoenix as part of the Department of Energy-funded WestSmart program in collaboration with Utah State University. Drivers will be surveyed on topics including charging locations, pricing and availability.
- One-time surveys are open to all active drivers (any car type) in each of the four cities for $50 Virtual Visa Card compensation.
- Recurring surveys are available to EV drivers who download FlexCharging to track their charging times and locations for a $100 Virtual Visa Card for each survey every 3 months.
If you are interested in participating, please follow this link to see if you qualify. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Patrick Singleton email@example.com at USU for more information.
