The percentage of the institution's employees that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to and from campus::
|Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters)||60|
|Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means||19|
|Vanpool or carpool||14.30|
|Take a campus shuttle or public transportation||3.60|
|Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped||0.85|
|Telecommute for 50 percent or more of their regular work hours||0.89|
A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting:
Pomona College works with Ridelinks to perform an annual rideshare survey that is used to calculate average employee commute information for the year. Respondents supply their commuting data for the week of the survey, which is then used as a proxy for annual commuting totals. The calculated margin of error is 1.98%.
The website URL where information about sustainable transportation for employees is available:
Rather than counting an employee who walks once during the week as an employee who uses alternative transportation, we used percentage of trips to work to calculate employee transport means.
