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:

A campus wide survey was sent out to all students to gather information on their commuting travels. We received 146 student responses. Of those 146 responses, 95 stated they either walk, carpool, bike, or take the bus as their main commuting method. The survey was sent out in early spring and was open for a two week period. The time frame for the survey was the 2016-2017 school year. The survey was sent out in April of 2017.

The percentage of students that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to get to and from campus::
Percentage (0-100)
Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters) 35
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means 45
Vanpool or carpool 18
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation 2
Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped 0

Additional documentation to support the submission:

All students who live off-campus were assumed to "commute with only the driver in the vehicle as their primary mode of transportation." This is almost surely an overestimate, as some of these students may walk, carpool, or take the bus.
