BTS Webinar Behind the Numbers: Exploring Transportation Statistics - Bike Statistics
1:30pm ET on Tuesday, April 25
National Bike Month is just around the corner! Ever wonder how much cycling is going on? We wonder as well! In this webinar we're going to be highlighting national and local efforts to count cyclists. We will also explore how bike-share expands modal choice and extends the existing transportation system by providing access to destinations off existing public transportation routes. Join presenters from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, Federal Highway Administration, and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and explore the role data plays in monitoring and observing key trends in bicycle transportation. Presentations will cover non-motorized count extensions to the Traffic Monitoring Guide (TMG) and the Traffic Monitoring Analysis System (TMAS), the MPO Bike/Ped Count Technology Pilot Project as well as highlights from the Intermodal Passenger Connectivity Database (IPCD).
