A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:

A transportation survey was sent in October 2017 to all faculty, staff, and students. The data for the response to this question comes from the question "If you consider an entire semester, keeping in mind changes in weather, what percentage of the semester do you estimate that you choose each mode of transportation?". Staff were categorized into groups based on at least 55% endorsement in one category. Faculty and staff responses were 286. Percentages for modal use were calculated by group count totals over total N. SOV (271/286), Carpool (2/286), Walk/Bike/NonMotor (6/286), MMT (1/286).

The percentage of the institution's employees that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to and from campus::
Percentage (0-100)
