Data from the 2017 Employee Survey and the 2018 Student Survey. Users were asked how many days a week they commuted by each mode. Percentages reflected in this data entry are for those who selected a mode that was used 4 or more times per week, with the exception of telecommuting because the instructions ask for 50% of more of regular work hours. Totals may not add up to 100% because of this method of collecting data
