The data available for campus commute modal split does not distinguish between students, staff, and faculty.

All commuter mode split data reflects the total population surveyed by physical count in 2012. Data is not segmented separately by students or employees. Mode %’s rounded.

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 percentages provided are the most precise representation of UC San Diego commuters currently available.
