A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:

In the past data was collected pertaining to how many University staff have parking permits and how many have RTA passes. These numbers were subtracted from the total number of employees to calculate non-motorized commuters. In the Fall of FY18 a benchmarking survey was issued for the second time to more accurately determine mode split.

The percentage of the institution's employees that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to and from campus::
Percentage (0-100)
Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters) 69
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means 13
Vanpool or carpool 5
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation 13
Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped ---
Telecommute for 50 percent or more of their regular work hours ---
