Effect of residential proximity on university student trip frequency by mode

A two-year study authorized by the North Carolina Department of Transportation surveyed the travel behavior of university students. Student travel patterns have not been studied significantly in the last decade. The project covered the sixteen campuses of the University of North Carolina system, which provided a diverse set of populations across the state. This paper uses the data from that study to examine the relationship between student trip frequency by mode and distance to campus. The authors present an impact assessment tool to analyze the daily vehicle miles traveled and transit ridership, as well as estimating the total trips by mode.
