Central Lane MPO has been collecting bicycle traffic volume data since 2012. This information is being used to track changes in usage and to better understand the impacts of infrastructure investments, and is being used in health and greenhouse gas planning work.
The 2012 and 2013 Bicycle Count Reports can be found at the links below. These reports describe observations and conclusions using the collected data and other sources of information, including travel surveys, smart phone data, and intercept surveys. All data collected throughout the program is also available below.
The dashboard below provides an interactive map and graphs which represent average daily and hourly bicycle volumes for both weekdays and weekends. These data are summarized by season to give the user some ability to compare counts taken at the same location over time. Weather conditions, such as temperature and rain, can have a major impact on daily bicycle volume. The interactive map below will be updated periodically as new count data are collected and processed. Information regarding the data collection methodology is available in the 2012 and 2013 bicycle count reports linked above.
The second tab at the top of the dashboard will reveal a similar map which shows estimated average annual daily bicycle traffic (AADBT) based on a seasonally-adjusted rate model developed by ODOT. The bar charts below that map provide year-by-year comparisons between model results and actual counts at each count location.
