Purpose of the Program
With the generous help of volunteers, NOACA conducts bicycle and pedestrian counts throughout Northeast Ohio during the months of May and September annually. These counts are conducted in order to accomplish program objectives:
- Gauge regional and local levels of bicycling and walking beyond what is already available from Census data.
- Identify trends based on count data to aid the planning and design of multimodal transportation infrastructure, as well as the implementation and execution of encouragement, educational, and enforcement programs.
- Aid in the prioritization of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and planning projects.
NOACA participates in the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project.
Bike Count Data: Count data can be downloaded in PDF and Excel formats
Volunteers: NOACA is occasionally in need of volunteers to conduct bike counts throughout Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, and Medina Counties. Volunteers will be asked to count passing bicyclists and pedestrians for two hour periods, while sitting outside, at various road and trail intersections. To become a volunteer or for more info please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank You! We'd like to thank all our bike count volunteers for helping us gather important data about bike ridership in northeast Ohio. They do a great job and provide a real service to the region!
