Bicycle and Pedestrian
POSTPONED: 2020 Triangle Bike & Ped Workshop
Learn more about this 10th Annual Workshop scheduled for March 26th.
The Institute for Transportation Research and Education (ITRE) currently manages the North Carolina Non-Motorized Volume Data Program (NC NMVDP) on behalf of the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). The purpose of the program is to establish a robust data collection framework to reliably calculate sidewalk, shared use path, bike lane, and shared lane volumes through the installation of permanent bicycle and pedestrian counters that continuously collect count data on representative facilities in North Carolina. The NMVDP has expanded to include additional permanent counters installed by the City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation Department. Counters are located across the state, and the Triangle region in particular, including counters in Apex, Cary, Raleigh, and Wake Forest.
Data are now available for the 2019 NC NMVDP Annual Dataset covering the period from December 2018 to November 2019. As with previous annual datasets, ITRE is reporting these data through Eco-Visio 5 using its dashboard system.
Safe Routes to Schools
Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) programs are sustained efforts by parents, teachers, community leaders, and local, state, and federal governments to enable and encourage children to safely walk or bicycle to school. SRTS program organizers examine conditions around schools and conduct projects and activities that aim to improve safety and reduce traffic and air pollution in the vicinity of schools. Where conditions are safe for walking and bicycling, program organizers encourage these activities through events, contests and other strategies. CAMPO is serving as a partner with regional agencies; along with local, state, and federal governments to provide support in this effort.
