University on track to achieve targets in its Strategic Travel and Transport Plan

The report for the 2019 staff and student travel survey is now available on the Travel Planning webpages.

The results show that the University is on track to achieve the targets in the Strategic Travel and Transport Plan.

About 4600 responses have been received by staff, students and University affiliates. Survey participants were asked to give information on their travel choices to the University for commuting. The report also includes information on how staff and students travel on business or between the campuses. 

  • More people than in 2015 cycle to the University (from 8% up to 9%)
  • More people take the train (from 14% in 2015 to 17%)
  • The percentage of people walking to the campuses has fallen from 39% in 2015 to 34%, but remains the most chosen mode by all 
  • Whilst the percentage of staff driving alone has fallen from 29% in 2015 to 25%, an increase of student single drivers in absolute terms has resulted in an overall increase from 16% in 2015 to 17%.

For details and breakdown by campus, please consult the report.

The University is currently reviewing the outcome of the survey and will use the information to identify future actions and campaigns.
