There are certain tasks that require a substantial amount of work performing dull activities. Researching ground transportation in other cities is typically one of these cases for many people. Companies can use online websites like to allow people with more free time to do these tasks for them. This allows the company to not have to hire new individuals, which is especially important in these dire economic times. Moreover, companies can offer higher cash incentives to get certain projects accomplished. Once the pay seems reasonable enough, then the work will be adequate. If the pay rate is too low, it appears as if the company does not care about the worker and the work will be poor. Hence, if one wants to get a certain amount of people to research ground transportation data for the other cities adequately and carefully, then the compensation must be fair for his/her time.

A work task could be set for a solver to research options for transportation in major cities around the world. The solver could be asked to provide a list of options for transport in a city that would be available to the seeker. The solver could provide a list of train stations and tube/tram stations and their distances from major landmarks and tourist attractions. The seeker could also find details of bus routes and locations of bus stops. Further to this it is possible for a solver to provide directions to and from any major transportation network to any postcode within a city. Finally it would be possible for seekers to research taxi fares and suggest reputable taxi firms based on local or researched knowledge.
