This is an exciting step forward in the City’s data collection efforts. Following a consistent, nationally recognized methodology will improve the quality and consistency of our data, and also increase the frequency with which we collect this type of data. The information we collect will document current levels of walking and biking, help us measure our progress towards increasing the number of people who walk and bike, and help make the case for additional investments. More information about the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project is available at We would like to recruit approximately 30 people to assist with the quarterly counts and hope you will be one of them.
