Total percentage of the institution’s employees that use more sustainable commuting options as their primary method of transportation:
35.40

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:

NOTE: THE ONLY DATA AVAILABLE IS BASED ON NUMBER OF PARKING PERMITS PURCHASED. THIS DOES NOT ACCURATELY REPRESENT HOW EMPLOYEES ARE GETTING TO CAMPUS, AS MANY EMPLOYEES ARE DRIVING TO CWU AND PARKING ON NEARBY STREETS. A MORE DETAILED SURVEY IS NEEDED.
We did these calculations to get the percentage result: (as of Winter 2018)

Percentage of employees who drive to campus:

(Number of faculty/staff parking permits sold /number of FTE faculty and staff)

(952 / 1474) x 100 = 64.6 %

100 – 64.6 = 35.4 % (Total percentage of the institution’s employees that use more sustainable commuting options)
