Public transit users take 30 percent more steps and spend roughly eight more minutes walking each day than drivers.

Help make bicycling count

The Chicago Department of Transportation's Complete Streets program needs volunteers for the Fall 2014 Downtown Bike Count.

The fall count is scheduled for the following dates and times:

Tuesday, Sept. 23, 7 a.m. – 9 a.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 23, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Saturday, Sept. 27 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.

According to Bicycling Magazine's recent rankings of the top 50 U.S. cities for bicycling, Chicago is the second best city in America for riding a bike! We are up from fifth place in 2012.

During last year's fall bike count, volunteers recorded over 15,500 bicycle trips and helped document the need for more innovative bicycle infrastructure to help make Chicago an even better place for bicycling.

To volunteer, contact David Smith, CDOT bikeways planner, at david.smith@tylin.com or Katie Gallagher, CDOT bikeways planning intern, at kgallagher@apexconsults.com.
