How has bicycle use progressed globally? This is a very difficult question to answer. However, drawing on a database of 1196 counters across 29 countries, counting 218 million cyclists, Eco-Counter has developed an effective response. The index – a simple calculation for traffic progression from one year to the next – only includes counters with data from both 2013 and 2014.
Congratulations to all our nominees and winners for this first edition of the Eco-Counter International Awards and special thanks to Philippe Crist for being the master of ceremony for this event!
And our nominees are…
Only one week to go before Velo-City, the essential event for international cycling policy experts which will take place in Nantes, from the 2nd to the 5th of June. Special event, bike tours, and workshops, Eco-Counter will be there, once more !
It has been one year since we installed an automatic counter on Peace Bridge in Calgary, Canada and so far 1.4 million crossings have been logged in already.
Those figures have and will be helpful to understand, analyze and plan future infrastructures, says the City of Calgary. We could not agree more.
We are very proud to organize our first ever EcoCounter International Awards in partnership with VeloCity 2015 which will take place in Nantes on June, 1st.
Data collected with automatic Eco-Counters, of course. Visual graphs to display counts and detailed policy analysis to better understand this steady rise and what is (still) to do to encourage cyclists to ride.
Thoughts on public health, active transportation and our famous flashy blue Urban Post in Washington, DC on M. Ted Eytan’s blog.
“In the future, every health system should invest in the ability to know about the health determinants of the communities they serve, and those investments should be visible to the people who live in them.”
Best Transportation Project
The first ever segregated bike lane implemented in Ontario. This pilot project launched in Ottawa in 2011 has now become permanent. Thanks to its environmental, economic benefits, and the data collected with its Eco-Counters.
