Please help Bike-Friendly Kingston with our 2017 bicycle and pedestrian count! Volunteers are asked count bicycles and pedestrians that pass an intersection on Broadway in Kingston for a two hour time slot. There are three locations counted at all three times. Forms and instruction will be provided.
Why is this important?
We don’t have a great picture of how many people are walking and biking through the Broadway corridor in Kingston. Cars are easy to count and therefore roads have been designed for cars. By counting walkers and cyclists we can fill out a picture of where and how many people are using active transportation. Then, we can push for streetscapes to be designed for all users. And hopefully, as road designs change, we can see how many more people are walking or riding their bikes.
The times are:
- Wednesday, September 13th, 4pm-6pm,
- Thursday, September 14th, 4pm-6pm, and
- Saturday, September 16th, from noon - 2pm
The locations are:
- Broadway & Cedar & Cornell St.
- Broadway & Andrew St.
- Broadway & Prince/Grand/Pine Grove Ave.
What you will get
We will send you a location map, counting instructions and counting forms to fill out. You will also get good karma and the satisfaction knowing you are making your community a better place. :-)
What you need
You will need a clipboard or hard book to write on, a pen or pencil, and anything else to make yourself comfortable (chair, sunscreen, jacket, water bottle, etc.).
A training session is scheduled for Sept. 8th, 6pm at the Anchor, 744 Broadway, Kingston. For more information on the training session see our Facebook event or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
