Commuting Survey

Every two years, MIT administers a Transportation Survey to understand how the MIT community commutes to campus. The State of Massachusetts and the City of Cambridge require that MIT collect data related to how students and staff get to MIT every day. In addition, this survey gives MIT the opportunity to find out if transportation-related services (subsidized T-passes, bicycle racks, parking access, etc.) are meeting community needs.
