Why is pedestrian and bicycle data needed

Why is Pedestrian and Bicycle data needed?

  • Safety Programs

  • Inter-modal Design and Project Selection

  • Travel Trends

  • Livability Measures


Pedestrian and bicycle research

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

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

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

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 tmg1

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
