An extensive employee and student transportation survey was conducted in the fall of 2019, in collaboration with Indiana University Bloomington Center for Survey Research. 50% of students, graduate and undergraduate, 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.
