Volunteer for Bicycle Counts

Minneapolis Public Works is gearing up to conduct its 4th 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 days for counting will be Tuesday, Sept. 14 and Wednesday, Sept. 15, although other days are available. Volunteers are needed for various two-hour time slots.

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 shaun.murphy@minneapolismn.gov or (612)275-5128.
