Statewide Non-Motorized Traffic Monitoring Program


Program Overview

shared use pathThe Florida Department of Transportation Office of Transportation Data and Analytics (TDA) began the development of a Non-Motorized Traffic Counting Program in May 2018 with a need to provide bicycle and pedestrian (Non-Motorized) volume and supporting statistics and information to new and existing data customers.  The intent of developing the non-motorized data program is similar to motorized traffic volume data in that non-motorized data can be used for all the same types of analyses such as safety studies, planning and programming FDOT facilities, pavement and trail maintenance, etc.


Purpose

To collect statistically valid bicycle and pedestrian (non-motorized) traffic volume data so that traffic volume statistics can be calculated and published annually.

Statewide Short-Term Count and Equipment Loaner Program

short term count programThe 2021-2022 round of short-term counts is currently underway. Coordination with local agencies regarding where future short-term count deployments will occur, will continue. Short-term count data collection follows national guidelines so the data collected can be submitted to FHWA.

Any local agency that wants to participate in the loaner program must first have a signed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between FDOT and the partnering agency.  See MOA template below.  

Please contact Eric.Katz@dot.state.fl.us for more information.

Statewide Continuous Counts

continuous count programFDOT TDA currently manages 13 non-motorized continuous counters statewide. FDOT TDA will continue to coordinate with FDOT Districts and local agencies regarding future installations. Continuous count data collection follows national guidelines so the data collected can be submitted to FHWA. See resources below.

Please contact CO-NMTMP@dot.state.fl.us for more information.
