Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Program

Between 2014 and 2019, Columbia Association (CA) and Howard County’s Office of Transportation partnered to conduct an annual Bicycle and Pedestrian Count program. Volunteers performed counts at locations throughout Columbia and eastern Howard County to capture demographic and numerical snapshots of pedestrians, bicyclists and other active modes of transportation at key intersections in the pathway system and on-street locations. The data gives CA and Howard County a better understanding of who travels in these key locations, the impact of past improvements and identifies future investments to improve user comfort.
