A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting:

The following data sources were used to calculate these percentages: permits sold by type, daily permits sold by type, motorcycle/scooter permit, bus pass sales and campus shuttle statistics. All students not identified in one of these categories were included in walk or bike modes. Residential students walk to class, so those with residential SOV permits were removed from the commuting number and counted as non-motorized. This data is supported by recent survey regarding commute behavior.
