Bike&Ped Data Subcommittee - ACP70 (2)
Welcome to the Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Subcommittee Website!
History and Purpose
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Subcommittee ACP70(2) is a Transportation Research Board (TRB) Subcommittee supporting and serving the needs of four different TRB standing committees. These committees include ACP70 Highway Traffic Monitoring Committee (lead), ACH20 Bicycle Transportation Committee, ACH10 Pedestrian Committee, AEP25 Travel Survey Methods Committee, AED20 Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems, and AED10 Statewide/National Transportation Data and Information Systems. The organization of a National Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Subcommittee was formalized in July 2011 in response to the need for accessing, sharing, and integrating national bicycle and pedestrian information. This subcommittee is focused on non-motorized counting technologies, collection methodologies, and associated data management activities.
The goal of this subcommittee is to develop standardized national data structures that allow for accessibility, scalability, and the integration of non-motorized datasets which guide and support traffic management, travel demand modeling, safety studies, and general non-motorized planning and research efforts. For more information on the work and goals of the subcommittee, visit our 3-Year Strategic Plan.

Webinar Title: Introducing a New, Free Tool for Evaluating Network-Level Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety
Description: Pedestrian and bicyclist crashes, while too common, are statistically rare. The likelihood of crashes occurring is linked not only to roadway risk factors but to exposure – the number of people walking or bicycling and exposed to those risk factors. The absence of crashes at certain locations does not imply an absence of risk, while most pedestrian and bicyclist crashes happen in locations that have not had any other pedestrian or bicyclist crashes recently.
