Bike Count Report and Data for 2014 Published!

In April 2014, the fourth annual city-wide bike count in Tempe was conducted as a way of understanding cycling habits and to identify routes and intersections that are problematic or dangerous. In total, 12,583 bicyclists were counted from a total of 79 volunteers working two shifts at 48 locations, with 21 common locations between 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014.
