Welcome to the Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Subcommittee Website!

History and Purpose

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Subcommittee ABJ35(3) is a Transportation Research Board (TRB) Subcommittee supporting and serving the needs of four different TRB standing committees. These committees include ABJ35 Travel Monitoring Committee (lead), ANF20 Bicycle Transportation Committee, ANF10 Pedestrian Committee, and the ABJ40 Travel Survey Methods Committee. The organization of a National Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Subcommittee was formalized 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.

Subcommittee Goals

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.

Join us for the March 2020 edition of Conversations with Colleagues!

Time: March 17, 3 pm – 4 pm Eastern

Webinar Title: Emerging Nonmotorized Transportation Data Sources

Description: The 2020 Conversations with Colleagues series begins with a discussion on some of the new methods for collecting bicycle and pedestrian count data.

Bahar Dadashova will be discussing some of the findings from the TRB Workshop Session “Making Sense of Emerging Data Sources for Nonmotorized Transportation: Tools, Tips, and Knowledge Gaps for Effective Analysis” and Sean Co will be speaking to some of the new methods that are taking place on the private side. These new methods will drastically shape how nonmotorized data is collected and how it will impact our world.

Panelist/Speakers

Sean Co - Sean is the Director of Special Projects at Streetlight Data where he helps customers with custom solutions for their transportation data needs. Sean is a transportation planner with 25 years of experience working with government agencies, consulting and tech firms.

Bahar Dadashova –Bahar Dadashova is an interdisciplinary safety researcher at Texas A&M Transportation Institute. She holds a B.S. degree in Economics, an M.S. degree in Statistics and a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering. She has developed concepts and methodologies using statistical, machine learning, and econometric models to address questions in transportation safety and operations, congestion, micro/shared/automated mobility, emerging and crowdsourcing transportation technologies, socio-economic transportation planning, air quality, public health and equity among others. Dr. Dadashova has published over 30 papers and technical reports and has managed and supported over 40 projects. She has participated in projects related to transportation data analytics in the U.S. and Europe. She is co-chair of the Bicycle Research subcommittee (ANF20) and an active friend of Safety Data, Analysis, and Evaluation (ANB20) and Highway Safety Performance (ANB25) committees. She is also affiliated with the American Statistical Association, Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals, Institute of Transportation Engineers, IEEE, Royal Statistics Society and Transportation Research Board (TRB).
