The website URL where information about alternative transportation is available:

The Employee Commute Trip survey allowed respondents to check multiple transportation options as the means of ‘commuting to their usual work location’. This allowed employees to indicate multiple modes of transportation, and the percentages reported totaled greater than 100%, reflecting mixed-modal commuting habits.

The total of reported percentages was 122%. In order to normalize these results to an even 100%, the overage (22%) was divided by 4 reporting categories then the dividend was subtracted from each of the categories as below. Because of the nature of employee schedules and job demands, it was presumed that walking/riding and bus ridership were the most likely to vary.
Walk/ride; 15 – 6 = 9%
Carpool; 22 – 5 = 17%
Bus; 14 – 6 = 8%
SOV; 71 – 5 = 66%
