Volunteer for Countywide Bicyclist and Pedestrian Count – Sept 12-14

A volunteer counts a bicycle as it passes by

Via an August 24 e-newsletter from Hennepin County:

Hennepin County is teaming up with Minneapolis Public Works again in 2017 for the second annual countywide bicyclist and pedestrian count, and you can help!

Last year, volunteers helped us collect data in eight cities outside of Minneapolis. This year, we hope to have enough volunteers to cover more than 20 locations across 13 first and second ring suburban cities.

Count shifts will run from 4 pm to 6 pm on the these dates:
• Tuesday, September 12
• Wednesday, September 13
• Thursday, September 14

Register online or by contacting Emily Kettell at or 612-543-1963.

Pedestrian and bicycle counts help county and city public works departments better understand how our streets, sidewalks and trails serve people walking and biking. Accurate counts help us better understand what is working and what could be improved.

Thanks for making Hennepin County your place to ride!
