Next Webinar: "Beyond Counting - Putting the Data to Work for Better Planning and Evaluation"

Wednesday, June 21 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Click Here to Register


The June webinar will be an exciting panel! PeopleForBikes' will discuss their forthcoming network analysis tool. Its goal is to join policy with politics, making it relatively cheap and easy for cities to locate the weakest areas in their biking network — and, eventually, the easiest ways to make the network better. The team from HDR and the city and county of Denver, CO will review several case studies and discuss how the outcomes of a recent study helped inform future capital expenditures as well as knowing the level of accuracy when reporting bicycle data sets and the context in which specific vendor equipment performs best. Presenters will discuss applying before and after data collection programs as part of a pilot two-way cycle track project and being proactive in applying initial data collection findings to tweak layout, designs, etc. They will also discuss applying before and after data collection as part of permanent installations to understand user experience, user understanding of new technologies and apply those lessons learned to future design projects. The city of Calgary will present and discuss their Center City Cycle Track Network Pilot.
