Additional documentation to support the submission:

3.03% of commute trips to UCI are by zero-emission vehicles (Pure Electric, Plug-in Hybrids within range to commute on battery power alone, or Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicles). The South Coast Air Quality Management District allows for these commute trips to be omitted from the "Drive-Alone" category as an incentive to encourage employers to promote EV/PI-Hybrid adoption among their employees.
