North Dakota State University Transit Study Report 2018-2019

This document contains a report based on two online surveys conducted by the Small Urban and Rural Transit Center (SURTC), Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute, North Dakota State University (NDSU), during the 2019 spring semester. The first survey captured the NDSU student experience with Metro Area Transit (MATBUS) and students’ travel behavior. The survey was administered to NDSU students, and it received 1,180 responses, capturing a significant amount of information regarding student travel behavior, transit use, and opinions about current MATBUS service. The survey obtained information on student transportation modes used to travel to campus, student access to vehicles, factors influencing mode choice, use of transit services, opinions on MATBUS service, thoughts on how to improve service, and willingness to pay for transit services. The second survey was administered to some universities; and feedback on the hourly operational costs of their transit systems, their payment methods, transit system asset ownership, and other characteristics of their campus transit environment was collected.
