CRCOG's hugely important Bicycle and Pedestrian Count begins in two weeks and volunteers are still needed. Can you help?
Why is this so HUGELY important?
Bike ped statistics gauge general trends in activity and make the all important case to fund projects that benefit bicyclists and pedestrians in the future. Bike ped counts help document changes in bike and pedestrian activity that relate to CTfastrak, East Coast Greenway connections, bike lanes on Burnside Avenue, New Haven-Hartford-Springfield Commuter Rail, and other upcoming projects that the bike ped community regularly dreams about.
How much time do you need from me? When and where do you need me?
Count times are generally 2 hours in length and are located in areas throughout the Capitol Region. Weekday counts will be conducted on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday (September 9, 10 or 11) from 4-6 PM unless otherwise noted and Weekend counts will be conducted on Saturday o Sunday (September 13 or 14) from 11AM-1PM unless otherwise noted.
Can I look at map for CRCOG's count locations?
