Why do bicycle and pedestrian counts matter?
Every September, volunteers count and survey people who are biking and walking the region’s trails and parks, using nationally standardized surveying and recording methods. The count is part of the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project’s annual gathering of trail use data at over 90 sites nationwide. Sites are selected by their tie to current or future trail projects. By conducting annual counts, cities can plan for and set priorities for trails, paths, and sidewalks, receive grants for capital improvements and collect important data that directly affect our community.
This September, SMART will enlist volunteers to count bicycle and pedestrian traffic at several locations across Wilsonville. The data collected, which includes bike turning movements, direction of travel, rider/walker gender, and helmet use, contribute to a robust set of data that helps to grow and improve Wilsonville’s bicycle and pedestrian network.
