UC San Diego can best ensure accuracy by reporting metrics currently tracked by Transportation Services, which meticulously documents the total number of commuters during its annual survey of pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
This survey focuses on tracking all commuter data for transportation and greenhouse gas purposes, but it does not distinguish between student, faculty, staff or campus visitors. Over a decade of data has been collected in this manner and demonstrates a significant increase in alternative transportation usage by commuters. The current number is the most precise representation of UC San Diego commuters currently available.
