Volunteer to Count Bicycles and Pedestrians in Hennepin County

Via an August 15 e-newsletter from Hennepin County:

Volunteer for the countywide bike and pedestrian count
September 10-12, 2019


Hennepin County is teaming up with the City of Minneapolis again for the fourth annual county bike and pedestrian count. The city is leading recruiting efforts for their locations, and we are leading recruiting efforts for suburban locations.

We have a new goal this year. We are aiming to recruit enough volunteers to cover more than 30 sites in 19 suburban locations. 

We don’t need much from those who volunteer. We need people willing to count the people they see walking, biking or rolling from 4 to 6 p.m. on any of these three dates:

  • Tuesday, September 10
  • Wednesday, September 11
  • Thursday, September 12

If you can help, click here to learn more about the counting process and register online for count locations outside of Minneapolis. You can also contact Emily Kettell at or 612-543-1963.

If you want to help with Minneapolis locations, contact Chris Kartheiser at or 612-673-2544.

Please let us know if you need any special accommodations, too.

Thank you for your willingness to consider playing a role in this effort. These counts help us better understand how our streets, sidewalks and trails serve people walking, biking and rolling.
