Research E-Circular. The Subcommittee is writing a chapter on the state of the practice and most needed research on bicycle and pedestrian data for the ACP70 2024 e-Circular. Our previous e-Circular is www.trb.org/Publications/Blurbs/170452.aspx.
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.

History and Purpose
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Joint Subcommittee ACP70(2) is a Transportation Research Board (TRB) Subcommittee supporting and serving the needs of our three parent TRB standing committees: ACP70 Highway Traffic Monitoring Committee (lead), ACH20 Bicycle Transportation Committee, and ACH10 Pedestrian Committee. We also support and coordinate with ACP25 Traffic Signal Systems Committee, AED10 Statewide/National Transportation Data and Information Systems Committee, AED20 Urban Transportation Data and Information Systems, AEP25 Travel Survey Methods Committee, and City Transportation Issues Coordinating Council. 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.
