Easy Sample

Selecting Trips for surveying is as easy as 1, 2, and 3.

  1. The first is selecting the Survey Type and Trips to sample.
  2. The second is downloading/uploading the trip and stop information to/from the handheld data collector.
  3. The third editing/printing the data that was received from the handheld data collector.

Easy Sample is used to collect Ridership statistics using the sample methodology defined by NTD reporting.  Handheld data collectors are used to store the actual on-board counts.  Random trips are down loaded into each unit with a day worth of sample trips.  In addition to NTD sampling the combination of software and hand held data collectors can be used to check dwell times and can be used for special trip passenger count surveys.
