The results are in!
In January 2016, 4,384 people from our University community shared their experiences commuting to campus by participating in the University of Manitoba’s first ever comprehensive Transportation Survey.
We now have a much better idea of how our community travels to our campuses, and how to influence travel choices. On both Bannatyne and Fort Garry Campuses, respondents reported using a sustainable mode of transportation (bike, walk, carpool, bus, park and ride) for close to 50% of overall trips.
Based on feedback from the transportation survey, the Office of Sustainability is developing a Sustainable Transportation Strategy for our campuses. The Strategy is made up of over 80 action items to continue to expand and improve transportation options on and leading to our campuses. Actions include development of a pedestrian and cycling plan for our campuses, additional supports for carpooling, bike lockers, the construction of a bicycle repair kiosk and exploring opportunities to improve the efficiency and affordability of transit options.
