A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting:
In order to park at Ohio University, employees must have a parking permit. They are issued a parking permit upon employment and charged monthly for it. There is a mechanism to refuse a permit, in which case the employee does not pay for the permit. The total percentage of employees using a most sustainable commuting option was determined by dividing the total number of parking permits issued by the total number of employees. It is likely an underestimate as some employees pay for a parking permit just in case it is needed, even if they routinely use alternative transportation.
