Bike and Pedestrian Counts 2018
September 11, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Trailnet and Great Rivers Greenway are participating in the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project for the seventh year in a row!
As we continue to collect count data each consecutive year, we are able to show changes in bicycling and pedestrian activity. Documenting these changes is essential to shaping infrastructure projects that make our region more livable for all.
We need volunteers who can commit to counting bicyclists and pedestrians at designated locations from 5 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 11 and/or Sept. 12.
Bicycle and pedestrian counts are great opportunity to meet your neighbors while helping the region support active transportation projects. Plus, volunteers will be eligible to win an Apple iPad!
Note that in cases of inclement weather, such as thunderstorms, Trailnet will reschedule this event to the following week as a policy. Please use your best judgment and seek shelter if the weather becomes threatening. Also check our Twitter and Facebook pages for ongoing updates or if you have any questions. In the event of a cancelation, counts will be done the following week on September 18 and 19.
The counts are a simple tally form, broken down into 15-minute increments. Simply print a copy of the tally form for each “screen line” shown for your location. You can check out the locations and the screen lines on our 2018 Walk/Bike Counts Map before you sign up. Two weeks prior to the counts you will receive an email with more instructions, as well as the tally form. You will need to print out the tally form(s) prior to the count. Trailnet will host an optional training on Wednesday, September 5, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at our office for those interested (411 N. 10th St., Suite 202 St. Louis, MO 63101)
Bringing sunscreen and a chair will increase your enjoyment of the counts. If you are at a particularly busy location (ex. Skinker and Forest Park Parkway) you may want to ask a friend to join you to help count, besides everything is more fun with a buddy!
Thank you for your support!
