Total percentage of the institution’s employees that use more sustainable commuting options as their primary method of transportation:
80

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:

Given its geographical location, SFU has historically demonstrated a strong performance in this credit. SFU Burnaby is situated on top of a mountain, with two main forms of commuting options available to the community: driving a personal vehicle or using public transportation (specifically TransLink buses). Therefore, the following data was calculated based on SFU's employee (faculty and staff) headcount and parking permit sales at the Burnaby campus in 2017.


The percentage of the institution's employees that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to and from campus::
Percentage (0-100)
Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters) ---
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means ---
Vanpool or carpool ---
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation ---
Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped ---
Telecommute for 50 percent or more of their regular work hours ---
