Bicycle & Pedestrian Planning

The Fall 2016 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Counts were held this past September. More counts will be announced in the near future. 

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

The counts are being done as part of the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation project. For more information on NBPD in general, click here.

To perform future counts:

  1. Print out the counting form (click here to download form) and bring other necessary items (pen/pencil, timer, etc).
  2. Arrive at your designated location approximately 15 minutes before you are to begin counting.
  3. Find a spot from which you can best view the entire intersection.
  4. Count and record cyclists, pedestrians, and “others” (skateboarders, rollerbladers) as they enter the intersection on the form in 15 minute increments. 
  5. When finished, simply scan or photograph the completed count form and email it to
