Count data now available online

counting_locationsOver the past four years, MARC has helped local communities measure non-motorized traffic by installing counting equipment and collecting bicycle and pedestrian data at more than 30 locations (shown on the adjacent map). The count data for each of these locations is publicly available through ArcGIS Online.

The Regional Counting Program was created in 2011 to help local governments and planners gain a better understanding of non-motorized use at transportation facilities within the eight-county transportation planning boundary. MARC loans counting equipment to local governments to help with automated bicycle and pedestrian counts. MARC used Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) funding to purchase six automated counters for short-term, temporary counting.
