2017 LA Bike and Ped Count
Join LACBC and Los Angeles Walks for our fifth biennial LA Bike and Ped Count!
As a volunteer, you'll be collecting vital data that will be used to advocate for better bicycle and pedestrian funding for years to come. We have over 150 locations throughout the City of Los Angeles, and we can't do it without your help. We're giving you - our awesome volunteers - first dibs at securing the shifts and times you want.
Please sign up here for a count location for one (or more!) of the following shifts. Please use our map as a guide, as some locations may change (location availability updated every two days):
Everyone who registers for the count must attend a training session so we can coordinate accurate readings. Plus, this is where you'll pick up your free t-shirt and meet your fellow volunteers.
Our full training schedule will be announced soon, but we have some dates you can RSVP for today, including:
We will also be adding trainings in Hollywood, San Fernando Valley and South LA between September 11 and 18. If you have any question about the Bike and Ped count, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
