A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting:

Student Transportation Survey sent to 5,810 students, with 714 responding. Questions included: 1) How did you travel to Cal State LA each day LAST WEEK (including the weekend if applicable)?, 2) If you ever drive alone or carpool to campus, please include your vehicle type, and 3) If you ever DRIVE ALONE to campus, what benefits would encourage you to try an alternative (check up to THREE options)? Survey takers also included their zip codes so average VMT could be calculated along with their associated GHG emissions factors.
