LOW-IMPACT Transportation

The UA Office for Sustainability, in partnership with UA Transit and Parking and Sightlines, a third-party analytics company, coordinated a 2022 mode share survey as part of the University's greenhouse gas emissions tracking. The questions asked related to transportation habits, opinions about carbon emissions, and general satisfaction with transportation on campus. The last survey of its kind was conducted in the 2015 mode share survey. The observed increase in alternative transportation options by UA affiliates was significant and inspiring.  The 2019 data shows the drive-alone number at 35% for off-campus students and 45% for faculty and staff. Meanwhile the percentage of commuters using alternatives such as bicycling, walking and transit had a net increase of 34% among faculty and staff and a 16% increase among off-campus students in the 5-year period.
