2019 Bike and Pedestrian Count

The City of Long Beach is seeking volunteers for its 12th Annual Bicycle and Pedestrian Count on October 17 and 20! To sign up or view available slots, click here.

Every October, volunteers manually count bicyclists and pedestrians in dozens of locations across the City and record travel behavior, including helmet use and wrong-way riding. This program is one of the longest-running count programs in the country and relies solely on volunteers for its success. Volunteers can choose from any of the following time slots:

Thursday, October 17 from 7:00am – 9:00am
Thursday, October 17 from 4:00pm – 6:00pm
Sunday, October 20 from 12:00pm – 2:00pm

Transportation planners and engineers rely on data collected in the bike count to make informed decisions about the City’s transportation network. Counts are conducted before and after new infrastructure projects are constructed to determine the effectiveness and popularity of specific types of bikeways. Bike count data is also used to supplement safety statistics and enable the City to engage in targeted public safety campaigns.
