Be a part of documenting the increasing levels of walking and bicycling in Connecticut!
The Capitol Region Council of Governments is participating in the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Collection program this year. Counts will take place throughout the Capitol Region from September 8 through September 16. Counters observe a location for 2 hours, noting how many bicyclists and pedestrians pass by. This will provide useful information that can help us in planning bicycle and pedestrian facilities. We are looking for folks who can count from 4 to 6 PM on a weekday or 12 to 2 PM (some locations, 1 to 3 PM) on the weekend.
You can count at one location for one 2 hour stint, or if you are energetic, you can volunteer for more than one day and location. If you are interested, please email Annmarie Clarke, firstname.lastname@example.org, and let her know of any preferences regarding location or count time. CRCOG will take it from there and line you up with a location, count forms and instructions.
Send us your bike walk related news and time permitting, we'll do our best to post it.
