Counting Cyclists – Fostering a Bike Friendly Public Governance

The German city of Bremen actively promotes cycling as a clean and healthy way of transportation. The creation of a vast network of cycle lanes and paths over the past decades has lead to a good infrastructure. The further extension of this network will require more and more to re-allocate road space, thus entering a confrontation with car drivers and their lobby. In order to re-assess the importance of cycling the classical surveys do not deliver sufficient data because they only give data for a limited time. Similar to the motorized traffic being counted at numerous locations all across the road network, there is a need for a continuous data collection and monitoring. Given the growing importance of sustainable transport modes, this task is addressed by Bremen’s traffic management center.
