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:

We assume that 100% of faculty and staff commute. The mode mix was estimated using a Commuting Survey of the campus community by Sightlines in November 2013. There have been no significant changes to factors that influence commuting behaviors, so we believe the numbers are reasonably accurate.

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) 91.60
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means 2
Vanpool or carpool 4.60
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation 1.80
Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped 0
Telecommute for 50 percent or more of their regular work hours 0
