UC Davis Campus Travel Survey

UC Davis Campus Travel Survey

The UC Davis Campus Travel Survey is a joint effort by the Transportation & Parking Services (TAPS) and the National Center for Sustainable Transportation, part of the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis. Since 2007 the survey has been administered each fall by a graduate student at the Institute of Transportation Studies. The main purpose of the survey is to collect annual data on how the UC Davis community travels to campus, including mode choice, vehicle occupancy, distances traveled, and carbon emissions. Over the past ten years, the travel survey results have been used to assess awareness and utilization of campus transportation services and estimate demand for new services designed to promote sustainable commuting at UC Davis. Data from the campus travel survey have also provided researchers with valuable insights about the effects of attitudes and perceptions of mobility options on commute mode choice. The 2019-2020 survey is the thirteenth administration of the campus travel survey.
