You spoke. We listened.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 survey and took the time to share with us their thoughts on commuting to Langara. In total, we received 3,931 responses from domestic students, international students, staff and faculty.

The survey results have been used to inform our decisions and shape our policies, from purchasing additional EV charging stations to advocating for better transit services. At Langara, we are constantly striving to improve our campus for our community, and there is no better way to do that than to hear how we can do so from the community itself.

Here are some highlights from our 2019 Report:

  • Langara students continue to move away from Langara: While Vancouver remains the city where the largest number of our students live in, the proportion that lives in Vancouver has continued to decrease over the last seven years.
  • Decrease in driving to Langara: 34% of respondents drove to Langara compared to 38% in the 2017 survey. The decline was especially significant among faculty members (75% in 2017 to 66% in 2019).
  • More commuters are getting passed up by over-capacity bus or train.
  • Satisfaction with Langara services increases among cyclists: Cycling to Langara is convenient with a number of bikeways nearby, and 11% of respondents have biked to Langara.

  • Many take transit and walk part of the way: 99% of the respondents who walk part-way also use transit (bus and/or train) to get to Langara.
  • Better communication would be useful for travel-related services.

  • Creating an employee U-Pass program would encourage transit use.
  • The majority of Langara commuters are satisfied.
