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

Parking and Transportation Services commissioned a Parking and Transportation Study in 2012 / 2013 to determine future parking policy and support the investment in transportation demand management to help shift commuter behavior to alternative transportation. The representative sample study included a modal split survey distributed to students and employees while allowing for participation by the general public (visitors to campus). The percentages are a representative sample of the total employee commuting population. This survey is our most recent survey on employee transportation modes. Following this planning effort, an annual mode split survey will be conducted every February to coincide with the academic census date for the University.
