Commute Survey

The Office of Sustainability conducted the University’s commute survey in Spring 2006, ten years after the first commute survey. A second survey was completed in Spring 2009. In 2013, the Office of Sustainability partnered with Campus Planning, Design, and Construction on the latest survey. Results show that walking and bicycling are the top commuter modes of choice overall while on average only 12% of students drive alone to campus. Nearly half of UO students live within one mile of campus, greatly reducing their need to drive. The graphs to the right show a detailed breakdown of students and staff primary travel modes from the 2013 survey. Moving forward, Campus Planning, Design, and Construction will be responsible for the commute survey.
