Lawrence, Eudora & Baldwin City use the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project method to count bicyclists and pedestrians annually throughout our area. Although this effort is led by staff, it would not be possible without the many community volunteers who help during the month of September to count at various locations for two-hour periods.
Data collected on bicycling and walking will assist City and Regional Leaders with estimating usage and demand for bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The counts will also be used to track the region’s progress on increasing biking & walking, strengthen grant applications to leverage additional funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects, evaluate existing projects, and help determine the location of future investments. The more people who participate, the more locations get counted. The local counts will also become part of the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project’s national database of biking and walking trends.
