The Pattullo Bridge is one of the busiest crossings in the Lower Mainland. The bridge, one of the oldest in the Lower Mainland, serves as a connection between Surrey, New Westminster and Burnaby. Since April 2016, commuters using the bridge have experienced significant congestion and delays in the area due to the Pattullo Bridge rehabilitation project.
UBC Psychology professor and happiness expert Elizabeth Dunn’s Social Cognition and Emotion Lab is interested in learning how drivers commute and how their decisions on the road affect their mood. The lab is inviting Pattullo Bridge commuters to participate in a new research study.
Specifically, they are looking for drivers who use the Pattullo Bridge and who are willing to participate in a study where they will provide participants with financial incentives and explore how drivers may find happiness by changing their routes.
