annual bicycle & pedestrian counts
Each September, the FHMPO organizes a region-wide bicycle and pedestrian count, following the procedures and guidelines created by the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project (www.bikepeddocumentation.org). The primary focus of the count locations is to obtain data on individuals using the transportation infrastructure as an alternative to driving, not those using it solely for recreational purposes. The data collected by the counts is used to prioritize infrastructure projects; strengthen funding applications for state or federal money; or to monitor use of facilities.
