Help count cyclists, pedestrians in Issaquah soon
September 11, 2012
Join the state Department of Transportation and the Cascade Bicycle Club to tally the number of people in Washington using foot or pedal power to commute.
The partners need volunteers to count people bicycling and using bike lanes, and walking on paths and sidewalks, from Sept. 25-27. Participants can join the effort in Issaquah, a city selected as a documentation site.
The agency set up a website to answer questions about the count at www.wsdot.wa.gov/bike/Count.htm. Or contact Cascade Bicycle Club’s Tessa Greegor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-204-0913 to learn more about volunteering.
The tally is used to help measure the Department of Transportation’s efforts to increase bicycling and walking.
“Volunteers are key to the success of this project,” Ian Macek, Department of Transportation bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, said in a statement.
