Last summer, we posted a shot of me, my car, and my super cute puppy on Instagram and it ignited a great conversation about cars in our community. We heard dozens of you about the challenges you face while car shopping and taking rides in taxis and their modern-day app-enabled equivalents.
I read all of your stories personally and they really stuck with me. So much so, I ended up doing a ton of reading about how seatbelt lengths are determined and regulated, trends that have impacted the interiors of cars over the years, and many other car-related accessibility topics. Now that I’ve read up on this subject, I’d like to understand your experiences in a more scientific way. Would you take five minutes to complete this survey?
Not only will your responses inform some writing I plan to do about plus-size people and cars, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it resulted in a new AllGo product that will help our community access cars that fit our bodies.
Thank you in advance for completing this survey. I look forward to reading your responses.

I think you’re going to get some weird results on the survey. I clicked the button saying I don’t use a ride-sharing service, but I was required to answer questions about my experience with ride-sharing services. For a more statistically accurate result, you’ll want to fix that.
Also, I think it would be helpful to create a questionnaire that asks folks what they like/dislike about vehicle design and how it can be improved to fit us. With enough responses, we may be able to have an impact and inspire meaningful change.
Hi Dayna, I’m sorry you got into a weird question funnel. I’m not sure what happened there.
Re: your questions about vehicle design–you’re totally right. For this survey, we’ve asked those questions only of people who told us that they’ve shopped for cars to rent/own within the last six months. We believe this will help us make more powerful claims in our research.
