BIKE & PEDESTRIAN PLANNING ––
HATS REGIONAL BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN COUNTS:
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Spring 2022 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Program!
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.
Watch this page for information about the Fall 2022 Bike-Ped Count!

To sign up, visit our SignUpGenius page (when live).
Download and print the counting form and bring other necessary items (pen/pencil, timer, etc.).
Arrive at your designated location 15 minutes before you are to begin counting.
Find a spot from which you can best view the entire intersection.
On the form in 15-minute increments, count and record cyclists, pedestrians and “others” (skateboarders, rollerbladers) as they enter the intersection.
When finished, scan or photograph the completed count form and email it to HATSBikePedCounts@gmail.com.
