AQMD Commute Survey

At APU, we’re passionate about sustainability and its impact on clean air. Each year, we partner with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (“SCAQMD”) by engaging our employees in an annual AQMD Commute Survey.

The purpose of the survey is to measure the effectiveness of the university’s efforts to reduce the number of single-occupancy vehicle trips and attain a 1.5 average vehicle ridership (AVR) to improve air quality in Southern California. The survey keeps the campus in compliance with Rule 2202 of the South Coast Air Quality Management District and tracks how employees travel to campus over a five-day (Monday through Friday) period.

If you have any questions or comments about the survey, contact the Office of Human Resources. For information on APU’s Rideshare program, visit the Rideshare page.
