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:

TESC students were surveyed in Spring of 2017 about their commutes and other habits. All students from all campuses were included in this survey. Graduate students were not included in this sample. A random sample of 1,200 undergraduate from all four campuses was selected and the sample was ordered by the class standing. Samples were taken from different classes to be more representative of the population. One-thousand seven-hundred and thirty seven undergraduates were invited and seven hundred fifty-one additional students were surveyed. Students were contacted by email or letter to take the survey.


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) 46
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means 8
Vanpool or carpool 20
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation 21

Students were able to select more than one option in the Student Experience Survey when describing their typical means of commute, so results do not add up to 100%.
