Overview

Cities extensively analyze vehicle travel with traffic counts, travel surveys, and demand modeling. Meanwhile, without good information and tools, it can be harder to plan for other transportation modes. In Bend, city, MPO, and state agency staff are working together to quantify the travel activity of people walking and bicycling, and to understand how well bike and pedestrian infrastructure enables people to reach their destinations. Using non-motorized traffic data and the robust tools to calculate accessibility to jobs and people, this work enables more informed decision-making within Bend’s ongoing planning processes.
