The website URL where information about alternative transportation is available:

This information is based upon responses to a student survey with questions on student transportation habits. The question was framed in terms of how many days per week did students utilize the various modes of transportation rather than which is their primary mode of transportation. This allowed students to indicate multiple modes of transportation rather than one single mode. The percentages reported totaled greater than 100%, reflecting mixed transportation strategies for many students.

The total of reported percentages was 129%. In order to normalize these results to an even 100%, the overage (29%) was divided by 4 reporting categories, then the dividend was subtracted from each of the categories as below:
Walk/ride; 33 – 8 = 25%
Carpool; 20 – 7 = 13%
Bus; 34 – 7 = 27%
SOV; 42 – 7 = 35%
