The current problem statement that needs to be addressed,
is that for environmental, social, and economic reasons, the need to drive
to campus must be reduced.
In order to recommend ways in which vehicular traffic on campus can be reduced, our task involved determining what information was required of our interviewees and survey participants. The information collected therefore depicts peoples method of transportation to and from the U of W campus with respect to cost, convenience, distance, weather, accessibility, and time. The following is a list of the information/data that was used to make certain assumptions or generalizations about the population under study.
1. In what geographic location, designated by zones of
proximity, does most of the population under study reside?
2. What percentage of the population drives, walks, cycles, or uses the bus to get to campus?
3. What percentage of the population under study would use an alternative method of getting to school such as a shuttle bus, if it were feasible?
4. A map showing the major transportation routes to get to campus so recommendations can be made concerning alternate bus or shuttle system routes.
5. Do users of K-W Transit find the service efficient in regards to frequency of pick-up and location of stops?
6. Is the current K-W Transit bus fare a deterrent from using the service?
7. How often does the average person drive to campus per week?
8. Would the average driver pay if the price of parking were to increase?
9. Do cyclists feel that facilities are adequate (i.e.: enough bike racks, safety of Ring Road)?
