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 Data Repository

proposed non-motorized count stationsThe Statewide Data Repository will serve as the data warehouse for all non-motorized data, both FDOT obtained and non-FDOT obtained. Any statewide agency currently involved in collecting non-motorized data is welcome to voluntarily submit their data to be included in the statewide data repository. In order for data to be submitted to FHWA, it must be formatted to the specific standards found in the FHWA Traffic Monitoring Guide (TMG).


Do you have non-motorized data to share with FDOT?

Statewide Outreach

statewide outreach meetingOutreach is an ongoing dynamic process of keeping the state and other agency staff informed as to the program status, as well as discovering opportunities to collaborate with other entities to maximize non-motorized traffic monitoring data collection resources. See numerous resources below.

Statewide Short-Term Count Program

short term count programThe Short-Term program is preparing for its first round of statewide deployments. Coordination with local agencies regarding where and when short-term count deployments will occur will continue. Short-term count procedures will follow 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 Count Program

continuous count programThe Continuous Count program remains in the research phase while working towards its first round of continuous count installations. Once final selections have been made, FDOT TDA will move forward with installation procedures and coordination with local FDOT Districts and local agencies. Continuous Count data collection will follow national guidelines so the data collected can be submitted to FHWA. See resources below.
