Our collective transportation choices have far-reaching effects both locally and globally, from traffic congestion to global warming. While the concerted actions of many travelers working together could make significant inroads into solving these problems, a single traveler working alone could not. This report presents a snapshot of campus travel at the outset of the 2007-2008 academic year, measures campus mode split and average vehicle ridership, collects UC Davis travelers' opinions about their collective problems, investigates barriers for travelers to choose to walk, bike, bus, or carpool to campus, estimates the total carbon emissions of campus commuting, and suggests target areas and strategies for reducing total carbon emissions.
