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

The NC State University Student Commute Survey presents the results of an October – November 2013 survey of 1,412 students who were enrolled during the fall of 2013 for classes on any of three campuses of NC State in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. NC State is one of several “local Service Providers” that offer commute assistance services funded by the Triangle Transportation Demand Management Program. This survey was conducted to define the commute travel patterns of NC State students who live off campus and travel patterns between and around NC State campuses by both off-campus and on-campus students. Additionally, the survey results will be used to develop travel assistance services that could make it easier to travel to NC State and around the Triangle region. To this end, the survey collected data on students’ awareness and use of travel assistance services offered by regional commute assistance organizations and by NC State and their interest in other services that could be offered.
