Presentation Description/Abstract

Sustainability has many points wherein it can be analyzed on a college campus. College campuses, being as large as they are, have large impacts on their communities and environments. This is so particularly at Embry Riddle, due to the large student body and affiliation with aviation. One place where Embry-Riddle struggles is to find a balance between population and use of cars. In the past, Embry-Riddle has tried to begin a shuttle system on campus, but the system is simply too slow and not enough students can ride it at the same time. In order to improve the issue with sustainability on campus, Embry-Riddle should use larger buses that can transport more students at increased time frames so more students feel it is convenient for them to use the public shuttle bus system. One method used to do this will be to quantify the amount of students who currently use the shuttle system and compare it with the amount of students who do not. From there, we can get an idea of how many students are not using the shuttle out of fears that it will take too long. Then, we can present to Embry-Riddle the findings about the probability if this approach could happen. In the end, the success would be measured based off of how many more students based on pre-project levels, have began to use the shuttle service.
