A series of questionnaire studies is described which was carried out on passengers in public service vehicles in the United Kingdom, particularly cross-channel hovercraft, helicopter and train. The effectiveness of the different rating techniques employed is examined and it is demonstrated that useful and reliable information can be obtained on the effects of such physical parameters as vibration, vehicle motion and noise using rating methods which involve no external standards. Some results obtained from analysis of the survey returns are presented. /Author/ /TRRL/
