Google researchers are going on an epic road trip to get your feedback

Google wants to hear from you! According to the Associated Press, a team from the Mountain View-based company is about to embark on a cross-country road trip in order to get feedback from typical users like you at various stops across the country.

The Google van will visit seven cities, according to the AP, and it’s all part of an effort to get a better idea of how everyday people use Google’s products and services. The company will give about 500 people a chance to share their thoughts in return for Google tchotchkes like T-shirts and gift cards.

This initial cross-country trip will visit cities in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California between March 18th and April 22. Google tells the AP that if the user-feedback road trip is successful, it’ll send the van to more cities later this year—and possibly to other countries as well. 

What about the rest of us? If you aren’t one of the lucky few to participate in the user testing road trip, you can still give Google a piece of your mind. Google’s user research team provides other opportunities—either in person or online—to offer your feedback to the company.
