Portland Area Bike/Ped Counts
September 15, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Volunteers needed! The Bicycle Coalition of Maine works with the Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System (PACTS) to conduct regular bicycle and pedestrian user counts at key locations in the region at specific times of the day and year. The goal of this project is to understand regional cyclist and pedestrian behavior, whether for commuting, recreation, or exercise. The data we collect as part of this project is the only consistent, uniform data set and analysis system for these types of modes. Counts happen three times a year – in May, September, and January.
The next round of counts will begin on Saturday Sept 12th and end on Saturday Sept 19th. Weekday counts will take place on Tues, Weds, or Thursday of that week – so either 9/15, 9/16, or 9/17. Counting takes only two hours and it’s easy, fun, and a really important part of improving the bikeability and walkability of the Cities of Portland and South Portland. Here’s a map of the locations we need covered this fall. To learn more visit our website at bikemaine.org/counts.
The next round of Counts will take place from Sept 12th through Sept 19th, 2015. Click here to volunteer now!
