Total percentage of students that use more sustainable commuting options as their primary mode of transportation:

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

During autumn 2011, Université de Montréal in collaboration with researchers from the Chaire mobilité de Polytechnique Montréal (Mobility Research Chair) and our Observatoire de la mobilité durable (Observatory of Sustainable Mobility) surveyed all Université de Montréal’s community members on their transportation habits to reach the campus. With a percentage of response of 18% , results from this interactive survey revealled that buses and subway were already a primary means of transportation to get to and from campus.

As it is a very long and expensive process, the institution canot launch this kind of inquiry every years. However, updates are made from results by using data generated through other serious transportation surveys. In 2016, datas were extracted from the 10th Origin-Destination survey of the Agence Métropolitaine des Transports (AMT, Metropolitan Transport Authority) of Montreal .

The results for 2019 were obtained from a survey made at Polytechnique Montréal (one of the two affiliated schools.) The results were applied to the Université de Montréal since it was noted that students and employees of both institutions have very similar behaviours (they are located side by side). This is why, until the Université de Montréal conducts a complete survey of its student clientele and employees (scheduled for fall 2020), we applied the variation obtained by Polytechnique in the evaluation survey conducted in 2018.

The results for 2019 were obtained from a survey made at Polytechnique Montréal (one of the two affiliated schools)located on our main campus. The results were applied to the Université de Montréal since it was noted that students and employees of both institutions have very similar behaviours (they are located side by side). This is why, until the Université de Montréal conducts a complete survey of its student clientele and employees (scheduled for fall 2020), we applied the variation obtained by Polytechnique in the evaluation survey conducted in 2018.
