A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:
In the past, data pertaining to student parking permits issued and RTA passes issued was obtained. Non-motorized commuters was calculated by subtracting permits and passes from student total and using anecdotal surveying. In the Fall of FY18 a benchmarking survey was issued for the second time to more accurately determine mode split, the results of which are displayed below.
The percentage of students that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to get to and from campus::
|Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters)||18|
|Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means||66|
|Vanpool or carpool||3|
|Take a campus shuttle or public transportation||13|
|Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped||0|
