NCHRP Report 797: Guidebook on Pedestrian and Bicycle Volume Data Collection is directed to practitioners involved in collecting non-motorized count data. The Guidebook (1) describes methods and technologies for counting pedestrians and bicyclists, (2) offers guidance on developing a non-motorized count program, (3) gives suggestions on selecting appropriate counting methods and technologies, and (4) provides examples of how organizations have used non-motorized count data to better fulfill their missions. The research behind the Guidebook can be found on the TRB website as NCHRP Web-Only Document 205: Methods and Technologies for Pedestrian and Bicycle Volume Data Collection (NWOD 205). NWOD 205 includes the results of the testing and evaluation of a range of automated count technologies that capture pedestrian and bicycle volume data.
