Regional Bike/Ped Data Collection
Measuring bicycle and pedestrian activity is an important step towards understanding it as a transportation mode, identifying trends, and finding ways to improve safety and connectivity for people traveling by bike or on foot. In 2014, SACOG embarked on the Regional Bike/Ped Data Collection Project to develop regional standards for bike/ped evaluation, procure automated bike/ped counting equipment, and develop Cycle Sac, a smartphone application to crowdsource bicycle route preference data. The project was competitively funded through the Bicycle and Pedestrian Funding Round with the purpose of increasing the data available to make informed decisions about future bicycle and pedestrian transportation investments.
Updates on the Regional Bike/Ped Data Collection Project are regularly provided at the Regional Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and draft and final reports and papers will be available on this page.
