FMATS Bike and Pedestrian Counts

The purpose of the counts is to create data for FMATS to use for non-motorized projects. This data could show how much a road or intersection is being used by bicyclists and pedestrians and could motivate the need of a facility or reinforce the need for more facilities. Volunteers have been counting one of three days a year since 2011 to create this baseline of data. Having this as a baseline, FMATS is working with DOT&PF to establish a Bike and Ped Count Methodology in hopes to place equipment on facilities to count non-motorized traffic.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Data

The charts below show the data that has been collected at 36 different locations over 7 different years.

Please keep in mind that these numbers are only collected from 4:30-6:30pm on one day of the year (in mid-May) and that weather or construction may be a factor in results.
