Total percentage of the institution’s employees that use more sustainable commuting options as their primary method of transportation:
16.44

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:

In previous years, the university worked with a consultant to inventory greenhouse gasses. This employee commuter value was determined by the consultant through a commuting survey that was sent via email to all campus employees. Therefore, a representative sample was reached.

We have tested their results using current parking pass data and the assumption is sill valid. Approximately, 16% of employees do not have a parking pass and therefore, it can be assumed that they commute to campus in a manner other than a single-user vehicle.


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)
Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters) ---
Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means ---
Vanpool or carpool ---
Take a campus shuttle or public transportation ---
Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped ---
Telecommute for 50 percent or more of their regular work hours ---
