A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:
We completed an online survey of students in spring of 2017. The survey was administered to 3,379 students equally distributed across gender and enrollment year. Each student could only respond once and responses were kept anonymous (we could not connect responses to individuals). We had a response rate of 22.55%.
The percentage of students that use each of the following modes as their primary means of transportation to get to and from campus::
|Commute with only the driver in the vehicle (excluding motorcycles and scooters)||16.60|
|Walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means||66.39|
|Vanpool or carpool||2.27|
|Take a campus shuttle or public transportation||1.27|
|Use a motorcycle, scooter or moped||0|

Additional documentation to support the submission:
To achieve the above numbers, we calculated the following:
Total percentage of students that use more sustainable commuting options as their primary means of transportation (0-100) = total minus students who always drive by themselves
All other modes are represented by "always" answer in survey.
Because we use the "always" response, our totals do not equal 100%- some respondents selected multiple "sometimes" and no "always"
