In the 2019-2020 academic year, the Parking Office tracked participation in their alternative transportation and rideshare programs and conducted an employee transportation survey. Currently 60 employees are registered for carpool/vanpool programs, 30 for the TAP Metro Discount program, and 20 participate in the zero emission vehicle permit program.

42 motorcycle permits were sold in the fall semester, but the permit does not distinguish between students and employees so this number was attributed to students only/not factored into this percentage.
