Cabrillo College Transportation Study.
This report provides results of the survey and other sources of information which have been used to develop a transportation management plan at Cabrillo College (California). In 2000, Cabrillo College organized a Transportation Management Committee to review the existing transportation situation and develop and implement a plan with the goal of reducing single occupant automobile trips to and from the College. One step in reviewing the current state consisted of surveying the College students, staff, and faculty to assess their transportation behaviors and incentives and disincentives to alternative transportation. This study indicates that: (1) most trips by Cabrillo students, staff, and faculty are solo automobile commutes--close to 75% of employees drive alone to work; (2) carpooling and bussing are the two most frequently used alternatives to cars; (3) buses seemed to receive the most interest as an alternative to solo driving; (4) primary bus motivators were automatically receiving bus passes and making bus trips quicker, such as through express buses or more direct routings to reduce bus changes; (5) increasing the number of bike lanes may encourage more bicycle riding; and (6) protecting the environment, reducing traffic congestion, and saving money were the reasons cited to consider alternative transit.
