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:

The numbers reported here are the most recent currently available, from the Fall of 2016. Students requesting a parking permit in are required to complete a transportation survey that includes questions regarding primary modes of transportation. This means we are able to identify every student that might commute to Mills via a single occupancy vehicle. 237 commuter students out of 1,326 students responded that driving alone was one of their primary commuting modes.
