A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:

Based on data from the Office of Institutional Research, in the fall of 2017, there were approximately 6,239 faculty and staff employed at FSU’s main campus. This number does not include Graduate Assistants – this group is included in student modal split estimates. In the fall of 2017, an estimated total of 5,320 parking permits were issued to FSU faculty and staff. Parking permit issuance is based on permit issuance data from our T2 Flex parking permit and enforcement system.
Based on the fall 2017 faculty/staff population and the number of parking permits issued to faculty/staff during the same time period, approximately 85.3% of faculty/staff drive to campus. The vast majority of faculty/staff that drive do so alone.

The percentage of the institution's employees that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to and from campus::
Percentage (0-100)
Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters) 85.30
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means 14.70
Vanpool or carpool 14.70
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation 14.70
Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped 0
Telecommute for 50 percent or more of their regular work hours 0
