OP-16: Employee Commute Modal Split
Director of Sustainability Integration
Institution's employees (faculty, staff, and administrators) get to and from campus by a means other than single occupancy vehicle for the majority of their daily trips. Alternatives to single-occupancy vehicle transportation include walking, bicycling, van or carpooling, taking public transportation, or riding a campus shuttle.
This credit applies to all institutions.
Institutions earn the maximum of 3 points for this credit by having all employees use alternative modes of transportation for getting to and from campus. Incremental points are available based on the percentage of employees that use alternative modes. For example, an institution for which 50 percent of employees use alternative modes and the other 50 percent drive alone would earn 1.5 points (half of the available points for this credit).
