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

An off campus student housing survey was conducted in 2014 that included questions about undergraduate and graduate student commuting choices. The results are what provided the above data.

While nearly 100% of the students who live on campus use alternative transportation, predominantly bikes on campus, we only counted off campus students in this question as they transport most often to and from campus and we felt that most closely matched the criteria for this credit.
