Biking and walking rates continue to increase in Marin County
WalkBikeMarin has released a new report showing weekday walking and bicycling traffic up 51% and 118% since 1999. The numbers reflect a trend of continued increases in bicycling and walking as Marin County implements bicycle and pedestrian encouragement programs and builds new bicycle lanes and paths as part of the $25 million Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP). The counts were conducted between September 8, 2009 and September 21, 2009 as joint effort of the Marin County NTPP and the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project , which is seeking to build a national database of bicycle and pedestrian counts based on standard methodology.
On December 1st, the Marin IJ ran a front page story on the results of the WalkBikeMarin bicycle and pedestrian count report. You can read the story here. The same article ran in the Contra Costa Times which you can see here. Around the web, Streetsblog and Cyclicio.us have also mentioned the results of the count report.
