A Multi-Pronged Approach to Cyclist and Pedestrian Counting

  • DVRPC is initiating an improved program for bicycle and pedestrian counting
  • The program will include both permanent, continuous counts and regularly-collected week-long counts

Source: EcoCounter


Continuous Automated Trail User Counting Program

  • DVRPC will install 12 permanent cyclist and pedestrian counting stations on multi-use trails
  • The stations will record and report data continuously throughout the year
  • DVRPC will use this data to calculate region-specific seasonal adjustment factors for application to week-long counts

Cyclical Bike Count Program

  • What?
    • Ongoing measurement of bike volumes in the DVRPC region (first of its kind)
    • Weeklong counts using tubes (on- and off-road facilities)
  • Why?
    • New seasonal adjustment factors will permit better weeklong count data
    • Seek to improve regional travel demand model
    • General gap in bike data: opportunity to support your planning and ours
    • Building toward a new regional plan

Cyclical Bike Count Program

  • When?
    • Saturation batch of counts in FY2015 (regional snapshot)
    • ~10 locations per county to be selected as cyclical count stations, to be counted on a rolling 3-year cycle
  • Next Steps:
    • Sought count location suggestions (general or specific) for each county
    • We will review to ensure non-redundancy and regional representativeness

CyclePhilly Smartphone Survey

  • Smartphone-based bicycle route choice survey (app and website platform)
  • Developed by a team of technical volunteers from Code for Philly using an open source platform developed by SFCTA and refined for other cities (Atlanta, Montreal, others)
  • DVRPC providing planning guidance, branding, promo, and coordination (BCGP, MOTU, SEPTA, others)
  • Our version is the best one yet!
    • Privacy enhancements
    • Bike to transit focus
    • But…

CyclePhilly Smartphone Survey

  • …success will depend on levels of participation
  • First version available now on Apple App Store and on Android / Google Play
  • We need your help:
    • Promo push for May 1-31 to get as much visibility and participation across the region as possible
    • Any promo assistance would be greatly appreciated!
