Methods for collecting and using Bicycle and Pedestrian Data
Sponsored by Task Force on Traffic Monitoring Conference (NATMEC)
Many agencies are adopting a multimodal approach to addressing the ever increasing demands on the transportation network. This approach requires data on modes that have not been part of traditional traffic monitoring programs. Bicycle and pedestrian data are difficult to collect but necessary to adequately assess and address the needs of these system users. Several efforts to collect bicycle and pedestrian data will be discuss in this session.
