Amid a growing population of staff, faculty and students, UCLA Transportation is still on track to reach its Climate Action Plan goal of a 52% alternative transportation commute rate, according to its newly-released "State of the Commute" report.SOTC_2016_COVER

In 2016, UCLA’s drive-alone rate was close to 53% for employees, significantly lower than Los Angeles County as a whole, where approximately 74% of all commuters drive alone to work according to 2015 U.S. Census data. The drive-alone rate for UCLA’s commuting students is even lower at just over 25%.

“UCLA Transportation has worked hard to reduce vehicle traffic on campus, and the results speak for themselves,” said Renee Fortier, UCLA Transportation's Executive Director. "Since 1987, the UCLA employee drive-alone rate has fallen from 74% to 53%."

The University continues to reap benefits from its substantial investment in smarter commute programs, including such measures as providing nearly 50% subsidized transit passes, vanpool subsidies, discounted carpool parking permits, bicycling infrastructure, and other commuter support services. Staff, faculty, and student incentives help employees and students reduce mobile source greenhouse gas emissions and make sustainable transportation choices for both their commutes and intra-campus trips. The annual report highlights the commuting characteristics of the nearly 45,000 students and 31,000 staff and faculty members, featuring graphs, charts, and tables that list program participation levels, specific mode use, and the commuter options and support programs available to UCLA employees, students, and visitors.

Amid a growing population of staff, faculty and students, UCLA Transportation is still on track to reach its Climate Action Plan goal of a 50% alternative transportation commute rate, according to its newly-released "State of the Commute" report.

In 2015, UCLA’s drive-alone rate was close to 54% for employees, significantly lower than Los Angeles County as a whole, where approximately 73% of all commuters drive alone to work according to 2014 U.S. Census data. The drive-alone rate for UCLA’s commuting students is even lower at just over 26%.UCLATransportation_SOTC_2016_COVER_small

“Through our wide range of alternative transportation options, we have dramatically reduced vehicle trips to campus,” said Renee Fortier, UCLA Transportation's Executive Director, "a decrease of 25% in the last decade. With fewer motorists on the road, UCLA has significantly contributed to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the region. Our success recently garnered the University a Governor's Environmental and Economic Leadership Award, the state's highest environmental honor.”

Additionally, UCLA was honored with a Silver status as a Bicycle Friendly University by the League of American Bicyclists.

The University continues to reap benefits from its substantial investment in smarter commute programs, including such measures as providing nearly 50% subsidized transit passes, vanpool subsidies, discounted carpool parking permits, bicycling infrastructure and other commuter support services. Staff, faculty and student incentives help employees and students reduce mobile source greenhouse gas emissions and make sustainable transportation choices for both their commutes and intra-campus trips. The annual report highlights the commuting characteristics of the more than 43,000 students and 30,000 staff and faculty members, featuring graphs, charts and tables which list program participation levels, specific mode use and the commuter options and support programs available to UCLA employees, students and visitors.

In 2014, UCLA’s drive-alone rate was slightly less than 52% for employees, much lower than Los Angeles County as a whole, where approximately 73% of all commuters drive alone to work according to 2013 U.S. Census data. The drive-alone rate for UCLA’s commuting students is significantly lower at just over 20%.

“This year’s report shows that our substantial investment in sustainable transportation programs continues to reap rewards,” said Dave Karwaski, Senior Associate Director, Planning, Policy & Traffic Systems, UCLA Events & Transportation. “To wit, campus traffic volumes are almost 25% lower than they were in 1990 and while campus activity continues to grow, much of this increased travel demand has been met by our numerous commute programs.”
