Welcome to the Boston Region MPO’s Bicycle-Pedestrian Count Program.
Thank you for supporting the Boston Region’s bicycle and pedestrian planning work. Volunteers are an important part of our data-collection program.
The MPO uses the data collected by volunteers to inform transportation planning decisions. The Boston Region MPO Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Database stretches back to 1976 and contains nearly 700 files. A summary of the 2013 counts is available here (pdf) (html).
The next count dates are:
- Tuesday, May 15, 2018
- Wednesday, May 16, 2018
- Thursday, May 17, 2018
- Saturday, May 19, 2018
- Sunday, May 20, 2018
The fall 2018 count dates are:
- Tuesday, September 11, 2018
- Wednesday, September 12, 2018
- Thursday, September 13, 2018
- Saturday, September 15, 2018
- Sunday, September 16, 2018
We are looking for a two-hour commitment from individuals on any of the above dates. We encourage groups that can schedule enough people to complete a 12-hour count*. Either way, please register to help us make sure we are not duplicating efforts.
If you are interested in participating in the May 2016 bicycle and pedestrian counts, please click the appropriate link below. Both options will lead you to the registration page where you may sign up for a time and place to count. If you haven’t counted for the Boston Region MPO before, you will also view a quick tutorial.
Have you counted with the MPO before?
*If you have an organized group that is planning to count all day long, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have already conducted a count and would like the data to be added to the Boston Region MPO Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Database, you may download the 2-Hour Bicycle-Pedestrian Count Sheet and send your data to CTPS via e-mail (email@example.com) or US mail:
