Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Transportation
Description:
In 2017, the CCRPC completed an update of the region’s Active Transportation Plan (ATP) with the goal of creating “a safe, comfortable, and connected regional network of pedestrian and bicycle routes that appeal to all ages and abilities.” Developing a “robust” bicycle count program was one of the key non-infrastructure recommendations in the ATP. The UVM Transportation Research Center (“TRC”) was contracted to evaluate current bicycle data collection efforts in the region, identify gaps and limitations, and make recommendations on how to develop a comprehensive bicycle count program that could better support the region’s bicycle planning objectives.
