Pedestrian and Bicycle Counting Programs
Key learning objectives:
- Review state of the practice for bicycle and pedestrian data collection, with reference to NCHRP Report 797
- Recognize the elements of effective bicycle and pedestrian counting programs
- Understand the methodology and policy implications of Ottawa’s bicycle count program
- Explore the Trail Modeling and Assessment Platform (T-MAP)
Consistent and standardized data collection techniques are the building blocks for establishing reliable performance measures to document usage, need, and return on investment in bicycle and pedestrian facilities. This 90-minute webinar provides practitioners with a comprehensive introduction to concepts, examples of current practice, and discussion of policy implications of data collection programs. The session agenda includes:

- A case study from the City of Ottawa that describes a methodology for measuring trends accurately over the long term and developing correction factors for short-term or seasonal influences
- Guidelines for setting up a robust counting program, with reference to the 2013 FHWA Traffic Monitoring Guide; including techniques for estimating Annual Average Daily Bicyclists and Pedestrians (AADB / AADP)
- An explanation of the Trail Modeling and Assessment Platform (T-MAP), the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s new tool to measure and model trail use for project prioritization and impact assessment.
