The state of bicycle counting 2018 infographic

As you may remember from a blog post way-back in February, we are a proud sponsor of the League of American Bicyclists’ Bike Friendly Community (BFC) program.

A few months ago, in collaboration with the BFC, we conducted a survey to examine the current state of bicycle counting. The survey provided a timely and much needed understanding of the way communities across the country approach bike counting, including the challenges and opportunities they face.

Survey responses were received from 178 communities across 42 states. From all of us here at Eco-Counter and the League of American Bicyclists, thank you to everyone who took the time out of their busy day to respond.

In this edition of ‘Planner Resources’, we are going to discuss the (much under-discussed) topic of validation counts!

Eco-Counter and the Ontario Bike Summit – 10 years growing up together

We have celebrated a couple of milestones recently.

A few weeks ago marked the five year anniversary of our first ever Eco-Display Classic bike counter installation! Since 2013, we’ve installed Display counters all over the world and Eco-Counter’s Display range has become a revered emblem of a community’s support for cycling.

April also marked the tenth anniversary of the Ontario Bike Summit, the premier cycling conference in Ontario. Hosted by Share the Road Cycling Coalition, OBS is a forum for cycling stakeholders across the province – Eco-Counter has proudly attended every one of them!

This year’s theme, “Looking Back and Rolling Forward“, allowed us to reflect upon just how much the Ontario Bike Summit and Eco-Counter have grown together.
