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:

Humber works with Smart Commute, a program of Metrolinx who help anyone who is going from A to B explore and try out smart travel options such as walking, cycling, transit and carpooling. Together we conduct a survey of our students, staff and faculty every three years about their commute. In February 2016 we conducted our most recent survey. We promoted it for two weeks via direct email, TV, internal communications and limited posters. We had the following response rates (exceeded all targets except one): North Campus students: 2,247 (target 1,165); Lakeshore Campus students: 1,547 (target 478); North Campus staff/faculty: 392 (target 370); Lakeshore Campus staff/faculty 220 (target 307).
