Make biking and walking count in your neighborhood!

Sign up today! Volunteers needed for to make people walking and biking Washington state count!!   

It’s almost time for the Washington State Bicycle and Pedestrian Count! This year, nearly 400 volunteers will sign up to document bicycle and pedestrians counts at crucial junctions.  This data is collected and shared with decision makers, planners and interested citizens. It helps demonstrate the need for investing in safer and connected bikeways and walkways across the state. 

Volunteers are crucial to success of the bicycle and pedestrian count program. With more volunteers counting more places in more cities, a larger sample size of how many people are biking provides more confidence in estimating the number of bicycle riders using Washington’s trails and streets annually.
