Auther : Dr. Saad M. AlQuhtani


Objectives: An evaluation and analysis of commuting patterns for faculty staff and students of Najran University, located about 50km from the city center with no developed residential neighborhood near the campus.
Method: A field study was conducted using 1150 questionnaires taken by all the University faculty members and staff in addition to the students. The study sought to investigate the characteristics of their trips to the university, their future transportation preferences and whether it is possible to find residence in the nearby neighborhood.
Results: The university is far from the residence of the majority of staff residence, private vehicles is the most common mean of commuting, the journey to university is relatively too long in distance and time, many of the university staff prefer to use trains and buses if available, and also want to live close to the university after developing its neighborhoods.
Conclusion: The paper was concluded with some polices and measures that should be taken to improve the current situation and develop a sustainable transportation system, such as encouraging planning and economic policies that reduce using private vehicles, besides activating policies that help to shorten the distance between the staff homes and the University campus.

Keywords: Travel patterns, Trip, Public transportation, Transportation demand management, Najran University.
