Survey report on student transport

Purpose of the survey

The purpose of the survey was to know more about student transport habits. The main goal was to know how they come to school and how much it costs them to go to school. We also asked questions about cars and attitudes behind the wheel.


We received answers from students from two different cegeps, about two third of th respondents are from ENA and the other third are from Eduard Montpetit. The questionnaire consist of nine multiple-choice questions divided in to three categories: the method of transportation, economical aspects, and cars preferences. 25 people answered our survey.


We can see from the results that the majority of people take their car to go to school, 40% still travel by bus. Respondents seem to live relatively close to their school with 64% who live closer than 20 km. The amount of money each student has to pay to go to school for one month is unequal, the amounts vary from $0 to $100. They like sporty and economical Japanese cars in the price range of $5000 to $ 15 000.


The results of questions 1 and 2 demonstrate that the majority of the people go to cegep in cars, but we were surprised that 64% have lessw than 20 km to travel and do it by car. The answer of questions 6, 7 and 8 allow us to think that the majority like sporty and economical Japanese cars in the price range of $5000 to$15 000. We have doubt about the results for the question number 5, it seem impossible to have 60% of them take the bus or car which costs overs $50 a month. The question number 9 was not very serious but we are surprised that 54.2% of the respondents always respect the speed limit.


The survey can confirms that the majority of people go to school by car when they have the possibility to go by bus, which is less expensive and more environmentally friendly but this choice seems to be influenced by the time it takes to travel by bus. Some variables are not very accurate, for example, the high percentage of people who lose time in rush-hour may be attributed to the absence of a no rush-hour category.
