Did You Know?

Roughly every three days, one person biking or walking is killed by someone driving a car in the Chicago region.

Volunteer to count pedestrians

The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) Pedestrian Program seeks volunteers to help count pedestrian traffic at key locations downtown Chicago. 

Reliable pedestrian counts provide critical data for assessing and improving pedestrian safety and walkability, as well as tracking city-wide trends in walking to work, school and transit.  

The count contributes to the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project and helps meet goals set out in Chicago’s Pedestrian Plan.

When: July 8-10, 2014, 4:30-7 p.m.

Where: Various locations around downtown Chicago

If you're interested in helping out, please email Eric Hanss, Pedestrian Program Project Manager, at eric.hanss@activetrans.org.
