2022 Transportation Survey Extended 

The 2022 Transportation Survey has been extended through May 18.  Please take a few minutes to share how you get to, from, and around campus. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. After completing the survey, you can opt-in to a raffle for 10 prize packages valued at $40 each. Ten participants will be randomly selected from those who opt-in. 

As background to the survey, 30 percent of Mason’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are attributed to commuting. By participating in this survey you will help us understand and improve how Mason commutes and you will be providing key data to help in decision making.
