Over half of the people (51%) in 2004 traveled by car followed by bus which recorded a ratio of 33%. It is apparent that only 9% of people used bicycles to commute to university which was about three times the ratio of commuters who used the train. Meanwhile, 4% of the people preferred to walk to go to the university. 

The proportion of bus-based travelers rose significantly by 13% as a new bus stop was introduced at the university in 2006. Further, some modifications were made to the car parking in 2008 at the university which led to the ratio of car travelers dwindled to 28%. 

In contrast, the percentage of bicyclists also witnessed a substantial rise by 7% along with the train passengers and pedestrians proportion which followed an upward trend to 4% and 6% respectively.
