Sure, it’s necessary

Not necessarily

Figure 16. Asking this question tells us about the
challenge in our case. If people find it hard to be-
lieve that they would change from bicycle to bus,
it means that we really may need some radical
solutions. Or if they think that they would really
asily change, then we would know that we just
need to fix some areas a little bit.

Figure 17. We already thought that maybe a WiFi
connection would help international students ori-
entate during the trip, so we wanted to see if they
agree with us.

Would you like to be
able to change from bi-
cycle to the bus easily?

If there is free wifi in
the bus, would you use
the bus more often?

Definitely

Maybe

Not really

Figure 18. If people don’t easily orientate on bus stations, they get easily frustrated and just take a taxi or
walk, or they may miss the bus or even get lost.

Open questions

To see the answers for the open questions, please refer to the Index part.
The following are the descriptions of the open questions:

What can irritate you on the way?

We wanted to hear peoples’ stories and dig deeper with their help; besides
price and lack of orientation, what are the ”unseen” problems and what can we
do about them? Or what are the unseen things that people like? How can we
bring more volume to those things?


If you don’t often use buses, what can be
changed to motivate you to take the bus?

This is the same as just asking people ”What’s wrong with LSL”, but we didn’t
want to ask it so straight, because we didn’t want to have straight answers.
Asking it this way, people really need to answer with more than just one word.


What would you change on the bus schedules?

International students all come from different countries so they have an opin-
ion about different kinds of schedules. They are maybe the best target group to
tell us if there is something that they would change on the schedules.


Is it easy to orientate during the trip?

If people find it challenging to orientate during the trip, they may not use bus-
es again.
