BikePed Portal provides a centralized standard non-motorized count database for public agencies, researchers, educators, and other curious members of the public. The public facing website allows users to explore annual, monthly, daily, and hourly pedestrian and bicycle volumes at over 600 locations across the country.
BikePed Portal is also a comprehensive non-motorized data management system for manual and automated bicycle and pedestrian counts. Automated quality assurance and quality checks have been applied to incoming data and flagged for data owners to process. In addition, authorized users have the ability to view, share and access data across other agencies. In the authorized view, users can access the Average Annual NonMotorized Traffic (AADNMT) station by station. The AASHTO method is used to compute AADNMT; and the FHWA-PL-16-008 method is used to compute AADNMT, Annual Average Weekday (Monday through Friday) Traffic (AAWDT) and Annual Average Weekend (Saturday and Sunday) Traffic (AAWET).
BikePed Portal was established in 2015, by researchers at Portland State University through a pooled fund grant administered by the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC). Other project partners include the Federal Highway Administration, Oregon Department of Transportation, Metro, Lane Council of Governments, Central Lane MPO, Bend MPO, Mid Willamette Valley Council of Governments, Rogue Valley Council of Governments, City of Boulder, City of Austin, Cycle Oregon, and Oregon Community Foundation.
BikePed Portal is currently supported by the Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) at PSU and its partners.
