In addition to the use of VIMS automobiles and the impact of personal commuting, we also collected data on other travel financed by VIMS. This data was collected using a survey, as  records of mileages travelled for financed VIMS trips were not available. Future monitoring could be streamlined if mileages for each type of travel were reported on VIMS travel forms and recorded on spreadsheets.
