The University of California, Davis, collect data each year on how the UC Davis community travels to campus, including mode choice, vehicle occupancy, distances traveled, and vehicle/bicycle parking. It also offers an opportunity for campus transportation services to assess awareness of campus transportation services and perceptions of mobility options. Most respondents live on the campus or in the city of Davis; 41% percent of respondents travel to campus by bike,33% by personal vehicle, 20% percent by public transit and 6% percent by walking. This modal split reflects the well-developed bicycle infrastructure in Davis. No statistically significant change was noted in the modal split between 2008-09 and 2020-11 but the percent of those physically traveling to campus is 3.3 percentage points lower than in 2007-08, an important change for its potential environmental impact and implications for campus planning.
