Motivation: Reasonable and helpful reviews. However, far from a perfect experience due slow decisions by the handling editor (it took a month to accept the final resubmitted manuscript after a minor revision), and it took another month to have the paper appear online, following a flippant and unresponsive process of typesetting by Elsevier.

Motivation: This decision was based upon suitability for publication in Computers, Environment, and Urban Systems and fit. However, they encouraged me to submit to the Journal of Transport Geography, which was not more suitable.

Motivation: Most of the reviews were useful and they have improved the paper, but the process of receiving the reviews and the decision was inexcusably slow. Communication with the editor could have been better, and the editor could have been more engaged in the process. One reviewer had unreasonable comments, and we feel that the editor should have stepped in after our rebuttal. This has considerably delayed the publication for no reason. After acceptance, typesetting by Elsevier induced some errors and it was also slow. CEUS is a good journal, but our experience with this paper was bad.
