This webinar will explain how app-based technologies can improve upon traditional pen-and-paper-based daily transportation diaries in terms of quantity and quality of data collected, particularly for environmental justice populations. The researchers will describe their own efforts, working on an inter-disciplinary team, to develop a custom-designed app, MyAmble, that measures the impact of transportation disadvantage more broadly across access to basic resources, opportunity to participate in wider society, and quality of life. MyAmble includes several innovations – daily digital trip planning, a text-messaging-based qualitative interview tool, and a challenge logger enabling participants to document real-time transportation barriers through videos and photos. Viewers will learn pragmatic strategies for implementing similar app-based ecological momentary assessment transportation data collection tools. In addition, researchers will share lessons learned from working on a technology-based inter-disciplinary team.
