Bike Count

2016 Tempe Bike Count: March 29-31

What: The Tempe Bike Count is an annual event where volunteers gather bike data at key intersections around Tempe over multiple days.  Volunteers work in two hour shifts, and record basic information on bike riders at their intersection, including: how many bikers they see, which way are they riding, gender, etc.  All this information is then compiled and given to the City of Tempe, so they can make more informed decisions about where in Tempe bikers need infrastructure/safety improvements.

Goals for the bike count:

  • Document the number of people currently cycling and monitor how the number changes over time
  • Publish a report of findings from the bike count
  • Use the information to help prioritize infrastructure improvements and traffic safety
  • Share bike count data with the public, other organizations, governmental groups, and individuals

When: The count will take place over three days. Each volunteer will count during commuting hours, one morning (7:00am to 9:00am) or one afternoon (4:00pm to 6:00pm). For any specific location, the morning and evening counts do not have to be on the same day, so the morning count can be done by one volunteer and the afternoon count by another volunteer.

Training: Volunteers are asked to attend one of the following training meetings:

  • Thursday, March 24, 6:00-8:00pm
    • at the Don Cassano Community Room (Tempe Transit Center, 2nd floor)
      200 E 5th St.
      Tempe, AZ 85281
  • Saturday, March 26, at 3:00-5:30pm
    • at the Don Cassano Community Room (Tempe Transit Center, 2nd floor)
      200 E 5th St.
      Tempe, AZ 85281

Where: Approximately 60 strategic intersections across Tempe.
