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 survey on transportation habits of ÉTS community was created in July 2018 by the sustainability officer and his intern, based on the surveys created by the school in 2011 and 2013. It was revised several times in the following months. It was finally corrected and analysed by the general management in October. The survey was distributed on October 24, 2018 to all students and employees and they had one week to complete it. The survey was created on the Surveymonkey platform. Percentages written in this credit were calculated from the total number of students who responded to the survey, which was 695 participants.
