Bike/Pedestrian Counts: Volunteers Needed!

Thursday, March 11, 2010 – Saturday, March 13, 2010


Arlington County transportation programs BikeArlington and WalkArlington are looking for volunteers to help collect bicycle and pedestrian counts in Arlington County on March 11 and 13 (postponed from February 18th and 20th).  This regular data collection is part of a national project to document walking and cycling as modes of transportation.  Collecting better data on usage and demand is essential to building long-term support for walking and cycling. More information about the national effort can be found at http://bikepeddocumentation.org 

Count locations in Arlington include shared use paths, urban sidewalks and intersections, and on-road bike lanes. Many of the sites are easily accessible by Metro. Arlington transportation staff will provide training and materials. Shifts are two hours long in the morning and evening on Thursday, March 11th and Noon to 2:00 PM on Saturday, March 13th. At some locations, volunteers may be asked to observe directional information, helmet usage, and other demographic data in addition to the number of cyclists and pedestrians. 

If you'd be interested in helping with this effort, just email: bikepedcounts@arlingtonva.us. Arlington County's staff coordinator will help you choose a count location and time. For your convenience, volunteer sign up will remain open right up to count time on March 11 and 13! 

Training will be offered to those who sign up. Details on training times and location will be provided upon sign-up.

We’ve had up to 50 volunteers help with previous counts -- let's see if we can provide even better coverage this time.
