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:
In fall 2015 and winter 2016, we respectively surveyed undergraduate and graduate students and asked them which method they generally used to get to campus in each season. The responses received were analyzed to ensure that the samples were representative of the student population. With representativeness confirmed, we determined averages for the various means of transportation. We added up the averages for students traveling on foot or by bike, bus, or carpool, as well for those who didn’t need to travel because they live on campus in residence.
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)||---|
|Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means||---|
|Vanpool or carpool||---|
|Take a campus shuttle or public transportation||---|
|Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped||---|
