TRANSPORTATION SURVEY INDICATES EMPLOYEE AND STUDENT COMMUTING IS MORE CLIMATE-FRIENDLY THAN PREVIOUSLY ESTIMATED
July 8, 2014
The results of Lane's 2014 Transportation Survey are in. You may be surprised to learn that 29% of respondents ride the bus, 7% carpool, 4% bicycle, and 58% drive alone. This data will result in a decrease of our estimated carbon footprint because Lane previously estimated that about 80% of commuters drive alone. The survey results also provided information as to what programs or incentives will better encourage Lane commuters to choose more climate-friendly modes. The most popular program is the bus pass, followed by safe bicycle/pedestrian routes. Based on the survey results, Lane's Commuter Emissions Task Force will be developing recommendations for how to further reduce emissions from commuting.
