HATS Regional Bicycle & Pedestrian Counts
HATS REGIONAL BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN COUNTS
The Fall 2021 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Program is here!
The counts, conducted exclusively by volunteers, provide vital data to our region’s planners, decision makers and anyone else interested in making walking and biking safer and more convenient in the HATS Region. They are conducted as part of the National Bicycle & Pedestrian Documentation project.
The count locations are determined as a cooperative effort between HATS planning staff, the HATS Bike/Ped Task Force and other local stakeholders.
The Fall 2021 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Program will take place during the following dates and times:
Sunday, October 10, 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Tuesday, October 12, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Wednesday, October 13, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Thursday, October 14, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Saturday, October 16, 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

On the form in 15-minute increments, count and record cyclists, pedestrians and “others” (skateboarders, rollerbladers) as they enter the intersection.
