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

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:

The mobility survey was answered by 406 staff, 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 staff 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). The survey was mandatory online for 3 weeks on the main site of the university, to access email, d2l and other services. Here is a link to the survey http://evaluaciones.usfq.edu.ec/events/usfq/auto/
