Volunteer for Bicyclist & Pedestrian Counts – September 10-12

Minneapolis Public Works is gearing up to conduct its 7th Annual Bicyclist and Pedestrian Count and you can help! Volunteers will be asked to count the number of bicyclists and pedestrians at several locations around the city. The main days for counting will be September 10-12. Most counts are conducted from 4:00-6:00 p.m., although there are shifts throughout the day at select locations.

The City of Minneapolis conducts bicyclist and pedestrian counts in order to understand the impact of non-motorized travel on streets, sidewalks, and paths. Accurate counts enable the City to plan and build for bicyclists and pedestrians, while tracking changes in traffic.

If you are interested in volunteering, register online or contact Simon Blenski at [email protected] or 612-616-7345. To learn more, please visit the City's count page to view traffic flow maps and past count reports.


*Please note that our friends with the City of St. Paul are conducting counts this year. More information can be found here.
