Commuting is often the largest cost for a household, after housing itself. Almost every mode of commuting imaginable is utilized by students, staff and faculty on a daily basis. The university is constantly working to improve safety and access across these modes, both on campus and in the surrounding city as was highlighted in the 2012 Campus Master Plan. In addition, UT Austin has several research units focused on transportation and mobility already collaborating with the operational units implementing mobility programs. Strategic investments will help students, staff and faculty learn and trust these options.
