Total percentage of the institution’s employees that use more sustainable commuting options as their primary method of transportation:
61

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 methodology used to evaluate the percentage of employees using a sustainable mode of transportation to commute to campuses was based on the number of parking permits sold in 2017-2018. Indeed, the percentage was defined by determining the number of employees with a parking permit, compared against the total number of employees at the University.

Thus, employees who do not have a parking permit are deemed to be opting for alternative means of transportation to go to campuses such as walking, bicycling, vanpooling or carpooling, using public transport, riding motorcycles or scooters, riding a campus shuttle, telecommuting.


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 ---
