WSDOT’s count is part of the National Documentation Project, an annual bicycle and pedestrian count and survey effort that is sponsored by the Institute of Transportation Engineers Pedestrian and Bicycle Council. The results also measure progress toward WSDOT’s goal of increasing non-motorized trips.
Cascade Bicycle Club is using its network of members and other volunteers to perform the counts in these cities: Bellevue, Bellingham, Bothell, Bremerton, Duvall, Ellensburg, Everett, Issaquah, Kelso, Kent, Kirkland, Longview, Mercer Island, Mountlake Terrace, Olympia, Redmond, Richland, Seattle, Shoreline, Spokane, Tacoma, Tukwila, Vancouver, Walla Walla, Wenatchee and Yakima. Volunteers interested in helping can learn more by visiting WSDOT’s website, www.wsdot.wa.gov/bike/Count.htm, or by contacting Cascade Bicycle Club at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 206-204-0913.
Previous reports are posted online and a follow-up trends report will be available in January 2011. For more information go to: www.wsdot.wa.gov/bike/Count.htm.
