Excuse me.
Would you mind if I asked you some questions?
We're doing a survey on transport.
Yes, that's OK.
First of all, can I take your name?
Yes. It's Sadie Jones.
Thanks very much.
And could I have your date of birth - just the year will do, actually.
Is that alright?
Yes, that's fine.
It's 1991.
So, next, your postcode, please.
It's DW307YZ.
Great. Thanks.
Is that in Wells?
No it's actually in Harborne.
Wells isn't far from there, though.
I really like that area.
My grandmother lived there when I was a kid.
Yes, it is nice.
Right, so now I want to ask you some questions about how you travelled here today.
Did you use public transport?
Yes. I came by bus.
OK. And that was today.
It's the 24th of April, isn't it?
Isn't it the 25th?
Ah... no, actually, you're right.
And what was the reason for your trip today?
I can see you've got some shopping with you.
Yes. I did some shopping
but the main reason I came here was to go to the dentist.
That's not much fun.
Hope it was nothing serious.
No, it was just a check-up.
It's fine.
Do you normally travel by bus into the city centre?
Yes. I stopped driving in ages ago
because parking was so difficult to find
and it costs so much.
I see.
The bus is much more convenient too.
It only takes about 30 minutes.
That's good.
So where did you start your journey?
At the bus stop on Claxby Street.
Is that C-L-A-X-B-Y?
That's right.
And how satisfied with the service are you?
Do you have any complaints?
Well, as I said, it's very convenient and quick when it's on time,
but this morning it was late.
Only about 10 minutes, but still.
Yes, I understand that's annoying.
And what about the timetable?
Do you have any comments about that?
I suppose I mainly use the bus during the day,
but any time I've been in town in the evening, for dinner or at the cinema,
I've noticed you have to wait a long time for a bus.
There aren't that many.
OK, thanks.
So now I'd like to ask you about your car use.
Well, I have got a car but I don't use it that often.
Mainly just to go to the supermarket.
But that's about it really.
My husband uses it at the weekends to go to the golf club.
And what about a bicycle?
I don't actually have one at the moment.
What about the city bikes you can rent?
Do you ever use those?
No, I'm not keen on cycling there because of all the pollution.
But I would like to get a bike, it would be good to use it to get to work.
So why haven't you got one now?
Well, I live in a flat, on the second floor
and it doesn't have any storage,
so we'd have to leave it in the hall outside the flat.
I see.
OK. Well, I think that's all...
