Would you start riding to the campus or ride more often if: 

 

 

Off-campus routes were added to make it more obvious and/or made safer.
Campus rules on bike use were made clearer and citations more predictable.
Enclosed and/or covered bike storage were added to store bikes while on campus.
Additional showers were made available, or improved education of existing shower options.
Realistically, I would probably not ride at all or more often because of any of these improvements.
Other  
13.

As a transit user, please describe your experience:

 

I ride to a transit stop and leave my bike there, but would bring my bike to campus if I could use it more to get around.
I would like to be able to leave a bike on campus overnight if safe storage locations were available.
I would take transit more often if I could more easily use my bike, skateboard or Razor scooter on campus to get around throughout the day.
Bike or skateboard facilities on campus would have no affect on me as a transit user.
I do not get to campus using transit.
Other  
14.

 Would you skateboard more on campus if:

 

Campus rules on skating were made clearer and citations more predictable.
I am fine with existing facilities. Just let me skate in certain areas so I can get around better.
Not applicable. I don't skateboard.
Other  
15.

Have you been ticketed for skating on campus?

 

No.
Yes, but more than a year ago.
Yes, within the last year.
Not applicable. I don't skateboard.
Other  
16.

While walking...

 

 

I have been in a collision involving a cyclist or skateboarder on campus.
Though I have never been in a collision, I have had close calls with cyclists or skateboarders on campus.
I am uncomfortable in areas where cyclists and skateboarders use campus pathways.
I am comfortable in areas where cyclists and skateboarders use campus pathways.
Other  
17.

As a walker, I feel that...

 

Bikes and skateboards should only be allowed on campus streets where cars are allowed and offenders should be cited.
I can support some lanes on roadways that provide cyclists and skateboarders a better way of getting around campus.
I can support bike lanes on pathways around campus as long as they are well marked and lit in areas with no blind corners.
Cyclists, skaters and pedestrians co-exist now. Special lanes are unnecessary. Faster modes should yield with slower modes.

If you are a student, are you often late for class due to distance, indirect route or inadequate time between classes?

 

If you are faculty, do you think many students are late for class due to distance, indirect route or inadequate time between classes?
