Bicycle & Pedestrian Planning

The Spring 2019 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Counts are here…and we need your help!

We are collecting data at the following times:

  • Sunday, May 5, 12-2 p.m.

  • Tuesday, May 7, 4-6 p.m.

  • Wednesday, May 8, 4-6 p.m.

  • Thursday, May 9, 4-6 p.m.

  • Saturday, May 11, 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.

If you’re interested in participating, scroll through the information below.
