dc.description.abstractThis thesis outlines the methods, results, conclusions and discussions of a body of work conducted in order to understand the commuting bicycling trends at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. By studying faculty, staff and the students’ preferences for commuting behaviors, this study is not only important to the university but also to those looking for granularity in future studies. An instrument was developed to gather and compare relevant data. Through the application of a bivariate analysis, the researcher discovered travel behavior differences between male and female bicyclist when considering choosing bicycling as a means of transportation. The study provides meaningful recommendations towards developing successful bicycle infrastructure that will help alleviate parking and congestion issues on the campus. The thesis concludes by summarizing easily employed strategies for the university that would entice affiliates of the university to switch to active modes of transportation when traveling to or from the campus.
