BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN DATA: SOURCES, NEEDS, AND GAPS

As an initial step towards enhancing bicycle and pedestrian data quality and filling data gaps, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) has undertaken this assessment of bicycle and pedestrian data needs. The study has the following objectives: 1) to provide an inventory of existing sources of bicycle and pedestrian-related data, including the extent, quality, and limitations of these sources; 2) to identify and prioritize areas in which additional or improved data are needed; and 3) to identify and recommend opportunities for improving the quality of bicycle and pedestrian data. Recommendations which emerged from the study are divided into 6 categories. They include general/cross cutting recommendations; recommendations on usage, trip, and user characteristics; recommendations on preferences, needs, and attitudes; recommendations on facilities; recommendations on crashes and safety; and recommendations on secondary data.
