Evaluating Bicycle, Pedestrian, Transit and Economic Data Collection Needs and Measures of Effectiveness in Pennsylvania

The purpose of this research project was to evaluate the current data collection procedures for bicycle and pedestrian projects utilized by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and Pennsylvania's Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and Rural Planning Organizations (RPOs). The evaluation has assessed how additional data collection could support Measures of Effectiveness (MOEs) for planning and design activities. Current limitations of bicycle and pedestrian data collection were identified through an extensive review of PennDOT publications, Pennsylvania MPOs and RPOs current practices, survey of participating organizations in bicycle and pedestrian projects and detailed analysis of five selected and completed bicycle/pedestrian projects. Project goals and MOEs have been identified and recommendations have been provided regarding data collection and analysis methods to support Long Range Transportation Plans (LRTP), project development processes, and agency (PennDOT, MPO/ROP, Local Governments) roles.
