Good data is valuable for creating and improving walkable and bikeable places in Minnesota. Many agencies across the state assist in collecting non-motorized counts with the long-term goal of equitably improving public facilities and spaces, and understanding local trends in walking and biking to create better encouragement and safety. As a state, Minnesota is a national leader in developing these methodologies and is working hard with partners to make data available to communities statewide. This presentation will highlight three agencies that collaborate on pedestrian counting: The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), and Minneapolis Public Works.
Learning Objectives include:
1. Participants will understand why a standard methodology in people counting is important.
2. Participants will be able to connect data evaluation of people biking and walking to street or corridor needs in their communities.
3. Participants will see how assessment tools of people biking and walking can promote equity in health and transportation access.
