North Central Texas Council of Governments Peer Exchange on Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Programs: A TPCB Peer Exchange

This report highlights key recommendations and best practices identified at the peer exchange on bicycle and pedestrian count programs, held on May 29 and May 30, 2013 in Arlington, Texas, through the FHWA/FTA Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) Program. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) requested this peer exchange to learn about different approaches for setting up and operating bicycle and pedestrian count programs to inform transportation planning. NCTCOG serves as the MPO for the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area and is responsible for the regional transportation planning process for all modes. The NCTCOG Transportation Department is responsible for preparing and maintaining the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (Mobility 2035-2013 Update) for the 12-county area of the metropolitan planning area (MPA). This plan includes the region's `Active Transportation' (bicycle and pedestrian) strategies for improving mobility region-wide. NCTCOG also coordinates the regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) which includes stakeholders and advocates from multiple agencies, cities, counties, special interest groups, and non-profit organizations. NCTCOG is seeking to implement a bicycle and pedestrian monitoring program in the region to support these efforts and to obtain reliable data to address bicycle and pedestrian performance measures, prioritize future projects, and quantify the benefits of investments.
