LMU is a member of the SCAQMD or South Coast Air Quality Management District. Each year, we're responsible for complying with government regulations, which typically include an annual community commute survey and filings with the agency. The Air Quality Management District (AQMD) requires employers with over 250 employees to file an annual clean air plan accompanied by a fee, which is based on the University’s impact on the environment. The requirement includes an annual survey that demonstrates employees’ commuting methods over a single week.
As a thank you, all participants who complete their survey by Friday, November 13, were entered into a random drawing to win one of Sixty (60) $25 Visa gift cards!
The typical measurement taken each year to measure how LMU ranks in terms of commuting in terms of commuting strategies through Average Vehicle Ridership (AVR). LMU's target is 1.5, thus our commute strategy is based around decreasing solo trips to and from the University.
