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:
An extensive employee and student transportation survey was conducted in the fall of 2017, in collaboration with Indiana University Bloomington Center for Survey Research. 34% of the student body (configuring a representative sample), undergraduate and graduate received the survey.
The survey focused on three areas for gathering commuting information; how employees and students who live off-campus currently commute to campus; how aware are employees and off-campus students of currently offered Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs; and what TDM programs and campus transportation infrastructure improvements would encourage more use of alternative modes for commuting to IUB.
The percentage of students that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to get to and from campus::
|Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters)||1.40|
|Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means||69.30|
|Vanpool or carpool||1.70|
|Take a campus shuttle or public transportation||27.60|
|Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped||0|
