It’s bike count time again. Cascade Bicycle Club and WSDOT are organizing the annual statewide bike count, and they need your help.
Late September is your time to make bicycling count in Seattle! Do you have two hours to spare for better bicycling?
Cascade Bicycle Club and the Washington State Department of Transportation are back for year four of the Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Counts Project. This project helps measure the progress made across the state in bicycling and walking and helps us advocate for new and improved trails and safe facilities.
We need your help to conduct bicycle and pedestrian counts in over 30 cities this year, up from only 16 when we first started a few years ago. Your help will support creating more bike and pedestrian-friendly communities.
To sign up for a volunteer shift, click here. If you have any issues with logging in or are unable to make your shift once you have signed up, please email me.
Date: You can choose September 27, 28, and/or 29 to conduct counts.
Time: Count times are 7 to 9 am and 4 to 6 pm.
We will follow-up with you to confirm your shift location and time, and to ensure you have all the materials you need to perform the counts. In the meantime, feel free to read more about the project here, and download volunteer instructions and count forms here.
If you would like volunteer in Bellingham, Burien, Everett, Parkland, Puyallup, Tukwila or Wenatchee you will need to contact the following people (these cities are coordinating their own volunteers):
