More Techno-Travelers on Transit - Unless It's Crowded

The Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development made over 16,000 observations of portable tech usage on airplains, trains, and buses. Their findings show that there is a increase of tech use on transit, but usage is reliant on users having space.

Privacy is an issue on cramped trains and buses.

Casey Miner reports on the study for KALW:

"On the largest buses, seating about 80, technology use falls by more than a third when more than 40 people are on board," said Joe Schweiterman, one of the researchers on the study. "We hear endless complaints that the coach cabins of airplanes have become awful places to use technology," said Schwieterman."
