Stand Up And Be A Counter

September 11, 2012

Photo: Tally Mark and pencilArlington County will conduct its next Bicycle and Pedestrian Count this week, and we need your help!  This regular data collection is part of a national project to document walking and cycling as modes of transportation. Collecting better data on usage and demand is essential to building long-term support for walking and cycling. More information about the national effort can be found at

This week’s Arlington count is scheduled for Thursday, September 13 and Saturday, September 15.  On Thursday, the count will take place at two times -- in the morning from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., and in the afternoon from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 pm.  Saturday’s count will take place from 12 noon until 2:00 p.m.  Multiple locations are available!

If you'd be interested in helping with this effort, just email:

Arlington County's staff coordinator will help you set up your count location and time.

In addition, for those who sign up by today, there will be a one-time training session on Tuesday, September 11, at Courthouse Plaza, 2100 Clarendon Blvd., Conference Room Azalea (lobby level), from 7:30 until 9:00 pm.  This is helpful for first-time volunteers, a good idea as a refresher, and always an interesting opportunity to meet and mix with others. We've had about 30 people attend when we've done this training in the past. 

If you can't make the training, don't worry, you can still sign up and help out! 

Just contact directly and Arlington County staff will go over count procedures with you one-on-one.
