Regional Cycling Counts
The CRD has been counting bicycle volumes at intersections throughout the region since 2011. The methodology follows the best practices of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project.
Screenlines are counted in the AM (7 - 9am) and PM (3 - 6pm) peak commuting times, Tuesday to Thursday on a single day in May and October. Extreme caution should be observed when comparing year over year changes as these are single day short duration counts and factors such as weather can account for significant volume differences. These differences are reduced when comparing the relative volume at different stations within the same count period.
Traffic and cycling counts are integral to transportation planning and infrastructure development. Visit the Regional Transportation page for information on transportation plans and active transportation initiatives.
