Total percentage of students (graduate and undergraduate) that use more sustainable commuting options as their primary means of transportation:
A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:
The mobility survey was answered by 3636 students, representing 40% of the student population and giving a margin of error of 1.11%. The survey was designed to assess the location from which students commute (using google maps), their method of transportation, their time travel and overall patterns such as going back home directly on a regular basis, using carpooling platforms such as autocompartido and shifting methods of transportation as a result of pico y placa (a governmental restriction on peak hours for specific license plates on each day of the week). 77% use other methods for transport rather than driving alone (23% of the population).
The percentage of students that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to get to and from campus::
|Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters)||23|
|Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means||8|
|Vanpool or carpool||26|
|Take a campus shuttle or public transportation||43|
|Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped||0|
