A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting:

Two methods are used to measure mode split data. The first is annual visual count of commuters arriving on campus, however, this data is not broken down by type of commuter (students vs. employees). This commuter mode split data reflect the total population surveyed by physical count of Commuter Vehicle by type and associated Commuter Vehicle people during Winter Quarter FY19 of campus entrances for commuter people and commuter vehicles. A representative day is created over a multiple day process each year for a data set that allows comparison of mode split calculations year to year.
