Bike Traffic Increases 15% on Bridges

Our 2008 bike count numbers are limited so far (we hope to ramp up bridge bike counts in September), but here are the preliminary changes in fair weather bike traffic on some of the major bridges from last year.

Walnut St Bridge - 91 Bikes per hour (AM) +8%
South St Bridge - 120 Bikes per hour +5%
Market St Bridge - 114 Bikes per hour (PM) +27%
Spring Garden Bridge - 98 Bikes per hour (AM) +21%

Overall that equals a 15% increase from 2007.
