Purpose of the Program
With the generous help of volunteers, NOACA conducts annual bicycle and pedestrian counts throughout Northeast Ohio in May and September. These counts are conducted in order to:
- 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 (updated through Spring 2017). NOACA solicits volunteers twice each year to help perform counts. Check back often for information!
