Overview

Annual Transportation Status Reports summarize transportation patterns and statistics and compares them to our baseline year of 1997 to track how the campus is performing on the three target areas from the 2014 UBC Transportation Plan. These three target areas are:

  • Sustainable transportation
  • Single occupant vehicles, and
  • Daily private automobile traffic.

We conduct and commission background reports on various transportation issues to and around campus. Examples include parking, carpooling, development guidelines, and cycling infrastructure. This research helps us develop policies and deliver programs which are appropriate and effective to our strategic initiatives.

Student research projects on transportation at UBC can be found in the SEEDS Sustainability Library.

Transportation Status Reports

The annual Transportation Status Report presents the most recent data which UBC has collected on transportation patterns and statistics. The report provides a picture of overall travel trends, as well as details of travel patterns for each mode of transportation. Data are also provided regarding on-campus transportation conditions.
