Abstract

Aneika Jasmine Perez

Safe and affordable transportation to and from campus are not available to many members of the HSU community. This research seeks to understand how members of the campus community can access forms of transportation without relying on private automobiles. A critical component of this research is to understand specific ways in which members of the campus community can access sustainable forms of transportation without relying on private automobiles.

This research draws primarily on Icek Ajzen’s (1991) Theory of Planned Behavior framework, to determine that choice of travel mode is based on decisions that are affected by attitude, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control. I addressed the questions: What are the main geographic, economic, and sociocultural factors that limit transportation choice for students at HSU? What factors motivate individuals to use alternative modes of transportation when accessing campus facilities? What is HSU’s role in advocating for safe bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure for students within broader sustainable transportation frameworks? This research will help inform new transportation planning to overcome barriers to safe and sustainable access to the HSU campus.
