Good data about who is biking and where is critical to our efforts to get more and better bike lanes around the state. We keep track of those counts that have been conducted, and can always use more data points! If you want to help, you can print out the forms below and then send us the data in via email or mail. Thanks!
- If you’re counting at an intersection, use this form.
- If you’re counting anywhere that’s not an intersection, use this form.
- Between October 1, 2014 and September 29, 2015, there was an automatic counter set up on the South County Bike Path in Peace Dale. There were an average 300 bicyclists/day in the summer and an average 25 bicyclists/day in the winter. You can see our full summary of the count results here.
- URI Professor Hillary Leonard conducted a study in May 2014 of bike path usage around Rhode Island. The study involved both counts (extrapolated out to weekly, monthly, and annual averages) and surveys. Some of the results we find most interesting are summarized here.
- RIDOT has conducted some counts in locations around Providence. These counts are ongoing, but we will get the data up here as soon as we can.
