Bicyclist and Pedestrian Count

The results are in!

Take a sneak peek at the 2017 count results by clicking on the infographic below, and stay tuned for a more detailed report in early 2018.


With the help of 53 volunteers, the City of Boulder Transportation division conducted bicyclist and pedestrian counts at locations along the city's multi-use path system in September. The data collected will inform transportation decisions in the future. 

The counts used the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project (NBPD) bicycle and pedestrian count methodology. The NBPD ensures a consistent bicycle and pedestrian count that can be collected on an annual basis for comparison over time. The data collected will also be shared with a national database to be compared with similar counts collected across the country using the NBPD. More information on the NBPD can be found here: National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project.

Many thanks to our volunteers!

With your help, we were able to collect pedestrian and bicycle counts at ten multi-use path locations! The data you collected will help us understand the number of users on the multi-use path system, the split of bicyclists and pedestrians, helmet use, and more. We couldn't have done this without you, so thank you so much for your time and energy.
