14

A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:

An estimation of alternative transportation for Faculty & Staff was conducted utilizing the following data:
Fac/Staff occupy roughly 230 leaseholds in Sewanee. Of these, roughly 40% utilize alternative transportation for work. As the campus and community are one, as well as small, this is seen as a conservative estimate. This also does not include those that live directly outside of the Sewanee line, who also commute via walking or biking.

230*.4=92

92/ 712=13%
