Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project (Traffic Counts)

Subject: Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project (Traffic Counts)

We need your help.

The Active Transportation Working Group, a spin-off the Rochester Cycling Alliance’s April 2011 Active Transportation Symposium, is searching for volunteers to conduct bicycle and pedestrian traffic counts in Rochester and Monroe County during May 2012 as part of the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project, http://bikepeddocumentation.org/.

We are planning to conduct the counts during commute times in the A.M. and P.M. on May 15-17.

The meeting to discuss the program will be held:
Thursday April 26, 2012
7 -9 P.M.
Rochester Institute of Technology Center for Student Innovation
Room 1100
Building 87, University Service Center, Parking Lot S
Map Link: http://facilities.rit.edu/campus/maps/general/general.pdf.

We will have a short training session on how to count. You will be using a clip board and recording on a paper form during the count and standing outdoors.

We will have some selected sites. We will be determining other locations dependant on the number of volunteers available. Bring a friend that is willing to help. Help us select additional sites.

We are also planning to use automated equipment at some selected locations but our first effort will be mainly manual. We will tell you about the automated counting devices at our disposal.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and are willing to do a count please send an email to Richard DeSarra, rdscomm@rochester.rr.com. We will arrange other training dates as needed depending on the response.
