We are pleased to announce the Spring 2017 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Counts will take place on:

  • Sunday 5/14, 12-2 p.m.
  • Tuesday 5/16, 4-6 p.m.
  • Wednesday 5/17, 4-6 p.m.
  • Thursday 5/18, 4-6 p.m.
  • Saturday 5/20, 12-2 p.m.

The counts, conducted exclusively by volunteers, provide vital data to our region's planners, decision makers and anyone else interested in making walking and biking safer and more convenient in the HATS Region. They are conducted as part of the National Bicycle & Pedestrian Documentation project.

The count locations are determined as a cooperative effort between HATS planning staff, the HATS Bike/Ped Task Force and other local stakeholders.
