Questions included: "How did you travel to Cal State LA each day LAST WEEK (including the most recent weekend, if applicable)?", and "If you ever drive alone or carpool to campus, please include your vehicle type." Survey takers also submitted their zip codes so average VMT could be calculated along with their associated GHG emissions factors.
