Information for this credit was gathered from the UWRF Parking Survey, which was last administered in 2005.

'More sustainable Commuting Options' was interpreted as any commuting method that was not driving alone.

To maintain consistency with survey definitions, both "Commuters" and "River Falls Residents" were averaged to obtain percentage points for student commute modal split.

As noted on the Parking Survey, good weather vs. bad weather had a negligible impact on transportation modes. The results for this credit were therefore taken from the "Good Weather" category.

Small differences in the numbers reported in the survey and the numbers reported here are due to rounding.

Recommendations are being made in the Sustainable Campus Community Plan to update the data as soon as possible.

The information presented here is self-reported.
