Staff and student travel survey published

The results of a major staff and student travel survey have just been published. It was conducted last autumn and is expected to inform the University's forthcoming Strategic Travel Plan.

The University's Estates and Buildings department says the survey results have enabled an understanding of University staff and student travel patterns, behaviour and motivations to be established. 

Among the survey findings:

  • Active travel, that is walking and cycling, accounts for 45% of staff and students accessing the University.
  • For University staff, active travel (cycling and walking) is the most popular mode of getting to work. 29% of the staff respondents said they travelled alone by car.
  • 'Travel by train’ is the preferred mode for staff at Tay House at 27%
  • On the Gilmorehill Campus, the number of staff walking to work is equal to those travelling by car at 27%.

You can view the full report which is available via the Estates and Buildings web pages.
