Transport Survey – the outcome

Thanks to everyone who responded to our recent Transport Survey.

We received 3,289 completed questionnaires; 2,045 were from students and 1,244 were from members of staff.

The winner of the £100 prize for responding to the survey is Claire Mills who works in the Library & Learning Centre.

The 2008 survey revealed a fall in the percentage of both staff and students who regularly drive to campus. More staff and students are walking, cycling or taking the bus than in the 2002 survey.

The percentage of staff driving cars to campus as their main mode of transport has fallen from 69% in 2002 to 58% in 2008. 14% of staff now use the bus as their main mode of transport, with a further 7% cycling and 7% walking to campus.

The percentage of students driving cars to campus as their main mode of transport has also fallen, from 29% in 2002 to 12% in 2008. 59% of students travel to campus by bus, compared with 50% in 2002. 15% of students walk to campus and 7% cycle.

The average length of one-way journeys between residences and the campus for both staff and students is 30-39 minutes.

A full report of the survey findings can be found in the Related Links section. A summary is also available.

Thank you again for helping us to build a picture of how members of the University community get to and from campus. The information will be useful to inform future decisions.
