Voice your opinion, take the Campus Commute Survey

A lot has changed in the last 3 years. Has your commute to campus changed?

January 16, 2023 — 

UM needs your help to improve your campus commute and help inform future transportation planning.

Fill out the Campus Commute Survey between January 16-31, 2023 for a chance to win a $500 grocery store gift certificate or one of ten $50 food vouchers for Degrees, Campo or Starbucks.

Results of the Campus Commute Survey inform strategic planning around transportation related infrastructure, education and peer-based programs in support of climate action, sustainability and wellness goals.

This year’s Campus Commute Survey includes questions to better understand our greenhouse gas emissions from commuting and air travel and inform future strategies for the UM Climate Action Plan.

The UM Climate Action Plan is a framework to help us halve our greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and become carbon neutral by 2050. In 2019, 29% of our total emissions were generated from transportation related to commuting, business and research travel, and fleet vehicles.

Take the 2023 Campus Commute Survey now.

You can also complete the Campus Commute Survey in-person at an upcoming survey lounge:

  • Brodie Atrium, Thursday, January 19, 10AM – 1PM
  • UMSU University Centre, Wednesday, January 25, 10AM – 1PM 

This survey is administered by the Green Action Centre, and all responses are completely confidential. Only aggregated results are reported back to the University.
The survey is organized biennially by the Office of Sustainability. Previous surveys took place in 2020, 2018 and 2016 (inaugural).

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Office of Sustainability at sustainability[at]
