Welcome to the Bike Count Data Clearinghouse!

What is the Bike Count Data Clearinghouse?

The Bike Count Data Clearinghouse is a one-stop repository for bicycle count data throughout LA County and beyond. This tool allows users to easily view, query, and download bicycle count volumes. Bicycle count data collected in Los Angeles County prior to December 2012 is already loaded into the clearinghouse. Going forward, local agencies throughout the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) region and beyond can upload their count data to the clearinghouse website.

The goal of this collaborative effort is to streamline and enhance the use of count data in active transportation planning and policy.

SCAG has also developed a bicycle count training manual, which provides guidance and standardized methodologies that municipalities, nonprofi ts, and consultants should use when conducting bicycle and pedestrian counts. As an additional component of the Bike Count Data Clearinghouse effort, SCAG assessed the potential for bicycle counts to inform and validate travel demand modeling, as well as estimations of reductions in emissions.

This project is co-sponsored by SCAG and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro).
