A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting:
In the fall of 2015, Transportation Services and the Office for Sustainability sent a survey to faculty, staff, and student commuters. More than 500 people responded to the survey. The data was entered into the Carbon Calculator used to track our GHGs. From there we were able to get the information needed to complete this credit.
The website URL where information about sustainable transportation for students is available:
Data extrapolated from fall 2015 transportation survey and campus residential information.
Residential students were listed as "Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means." Commuting students who walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means make up 1.5% of the total.
