Macalester Sustainbility Office

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:
Of the total student body, Macalester houses nearly 60% of them on campus – this makes their commuting footprint much smaller. With the College's urban location, parking is a limitation so it is often a better idea to live nearby and bike or walk to campus than it is to drive, as parking is at a premium.
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)||5|
|Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means||92|
|Vanpool or carpool||1|
|Take a campus shuttle or public transportation||2|
|Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped||0|
