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

The University of Manitoba contracted Green Action Centre, a non-profit, non-governmental organization, based in Winnipeg, to plan, design and deliver a comprehensive commuting survey open to all students, faculty, employees, and other non-University employees working at facilities on campus. The online survey was conducted in January 2020, with the link circulated via email to all faculty and staff, through weekly e-news to students and via hard copy to participating non-university offices. The survey was promoted through a wide variety of sources including, but not limited to, radio notifications, e-news, social media, printed posters, and in-person at tabling events.

The survey had 3,701 respondents, approximately 9.4% of the University community. Out of that 9.4%, students made up 61%, Employees 30%, and Faculty 10%. This translates to the complete University population where students represent 75% of the campus population, staff represent 20% and faculty represent 5%.

Commuting method was self-reported by survey respondents for year-round travel.
