What’s your ride? 2015 Transportation Survey – UBC Okanagan Campus
Between November 22 – December 24, 2015, Campus Planning conducted a voluntary survey of the campus community – students, staff and faculty. Over 2,500 responses were received, with a response rate of 24%.
Staff is presently analyzing the survey results, and will publish a report in spring 2016.
All survey participants were automatically entered into a draw to win one of 10 prizes of a $50 UBC Bookstore gift card. All prize winners were contacted by e-mail. Below are some of the lucky prize draw winners!

About the survey
Open to all students, staff and faculty at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
Invites sent to UBC and student email accounts November 22; the survey remains live until December 24.
Takes about 10 minutes to complete.
Participation is voluntary, but highly encouraged.
Results of the survey will be aggregated and no personal identification information will be used in results analysis.
Why survey now?
The last comprehensive transportation survey of the Okanagan campus was in 2009 (UBCO Transportation Survey – 2009) so there is a need to collect current commuter information.
Data will be used to understand future travel pattern changes that could result from upcoming road and cycling projects such as the City of Kelowna’s John Hindle Drive extension from GlenmoreRoad to Highway 97 via UBC’s Okanagan campus.
Information from the 2015 survey will be used to prepare for the upcoming UBC Okanagan Transportation Plan, as well as to inform day-to-day planning and upcoming campus projects.
