I thought Portland State University's campus commuter survey was fairly good. I like how they allowed people to choose different ways to commute on different days because often times a student's schedule is different on different days, which could affect how they commute. I think it is interesting that they had survey takers tell how they commuted each day last week. I am wondering if this would give you accurate results or not, since they asked about a specific week and not how people commute in general. I think it is also good to ask what benefits would encourage the survey takers to try alternatives to commuting alone. I also think it is a good idea to have a spot for people to comment on PSU transportation. It was different for them to ask for the survey taker's address. I do not really understand the purpose. Overall, I thought this survey had some very good points for us to consider when doing our survey.
