We need volunteers to count bicyclists at several key intersections and bridges between April 26th and 30th (weather permitting).
These counts are very important benchmarks for determining the level of bicycling and bicycle behavior in Philadelphia. The Bicycle Coalition has conducted counts since 1990 and data from these counts were used to prepare the report we released in 2008 called Double Dutch, which found that bicycling had doubled between 2005 and 2008.
The counts are 1.5 hours from 7:30-9:00 am or 4:30-6pm. The primary locations will be the bridges crossing the Schuylkill along with Spruce and Pine Streets. Each location needs two am and pm counts.
If you are willing to volunteer please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the times and dates that you are available.
