Monitoring Bicyclist and Pedestrian Travel and Behavior: Current Research and Practice

Bicycling and walking, or “active transportation,” are fundamental modes of transportation, but methods to monitor the traffic of these modes have been slow to advance until the last decade or so. The purpose of this document is to chronicle the most recent advancements in techniques and technology of active transportation monitoring, but it is not meant to be an exhaustive review of the field. Though written for an audience of practicing engineers, urban planners, transportation researchers, this e-circular may also be of use to citizens or activists interested in developing high-quality data on bicycling and walking. More specifically, this e-circular addresses two key objectives: 1) identify a selection of recent advancements in bicycle and pedestrian data monitoring pertaining to both traffic volumes and behavioral data; and 2) introduce a selection of ongoing projects expected to contribute to the field of bicycle and pedestrian data.
