Volunteer for Bicycle Counts

Minneapolis Public Works is gearing up to conduct its 3rd annual Bicycle and Pedestrian Count, and you can volunteer to help. Volunteers will be asked to count the number of bicyclists and pedestrians at several locations around the city. The main day for counting will be Tuesday, Sept. 15, although other days are available. Volunteers will sign up for various two-hour time slots, and are particularly needed from 4 to 6 p.m. on the 15th.

Minneapolis Public Works conducts bicyclist and pedestrian counts in order to understand the impact of non-motorized travel on streets, sidewalks, and bike paths. Accurate counts enable the City to plan and build for bicyclists and pedestrians, while tracking what’s successful and what should be done differently.

If youre interested in volunteering, register online or contact Shaun Murphy at [email protected] or (612)275-5128.

To learn more about how bicycle and pedestrian counts are used, you can see a report on the 2008 counts (pdf).
