Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Collection

FHWA - Washington DC

Why is Pedestrian and Bicycle data needed?

  • Safety Programs

  • Inter-modal Design and Project Selection

  • Travel Trends

  • Livability Measures


Pedestrian and Bicycle Research

  • FHWA Study on current methods

    • Most equipment not being verified

    • Most counts are done manually – over 50%

  • National Bike and Pedestrian DP

    • Need for National Formats

    • National B & P Storage

    • Desire for good Quality Control

    • Need for Factoring Methods


Bicycle and Pedestrian Policy

  • US DOT 2010 Policy Statement on Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodation

    • Recommendations:

      • …establishing routine collection of non-motorized trip information.

      • A byproduct of improved data collection is that communities can establish targets for increasing the percentage of trips made by walking and bicycling.


FHWA Leadership on Bike and Pedestrian Data Collection

  • 2012 Traffic Monitoring Guide Formats

    Interoffice Agreement

  • TMAS Future version with Bicycle and Pedestrian Data

    • Quality Control of the data

    • National Database

    • Reports for B & P Data

    • Exporting of B & P Data

    • Sharing of B & P Data – GIS based system


B & P Formats in 2012 TMG

  • TMG (2012) to include a station file format for both pedestrian and bicycle counts from point based locations

    • Field defined format with station specific identifiers

    • Flexible for both pedestrian, bicycle or mixed use sites

    • Fixed field width or variable (| - “pipe”) width fields capability


B & P Formats in 2012 TMG

  • TMG (2012) to include a volume file format for both pedestrian and bicycle data from point based locations

    • Variable time in 5, 15, or 60 minute intervals

    • Weather and temperature inputs (optional)

    • Flexible for both pedestrian, bicycle or mixed use sites

      Not for classification counts

      Not for spatial based counts
