The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Transportation Data and Analytics (TDA) Office began the development of a Statewide Non-Motorized Traffic Monitoring Program (NMTMP) in May 2018 with a need to provide bicycle and pedestrian (non-motorized) volume counts, supporting statistics and information to new and existing data customers. TDA intends to develop the NMTMP similar to the Motorized Traffic Monitoring Program so the data can be used for the same types of analyses such as Safety studies, planning and programming of FDOT facilities, road and trail maintenance and enhancements, etc.
TDA aims to collect statistically valid bicycle and pedestrian (non-motorized) volume data so that statistics can be calculated and published annually.
The program is built on the following 4 pillars:
Non-Motorized traffic count data can be found by clicking here or
the map link below. Please contact the Transportation Data and Analytics Office if you have any special non-motorized traffic data requests, questions, or concerns at CO-NMTMP@dot.state.fl.us. When
accessing the map, know that you can customize the view by (de)selecting different layer options. The stacked sheet symbol in the upper right corner let you customize the layers on the map to your own liking.
Outreach is an ongoing dynamic process of keeping the state and other stakeholders 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. Program updates are typically provided in newsletter, webinar, in-person statewide meetings, and/or virtual meetings. See the numerous resources below.

Statewide Short-Term Count and Equipment Loaner Program
The TDA Office has been collecting short-term non-motorized traffic data from 2019 through 2022 and continues to do so. During the 2021-2022 period, FDOT and partnering agencies collected on-peak and off-peak data from multiple locations in every district. The results of this round of short-term counts (2-week deployments) are accessible through the repository map by clicking on the blue dots of your interest.
TDA continues to coordinate with local agencies regarding where future short-term count deployments will occur. Short-term count data collection follows national guidelines so the data collected can be submitted to FHWA.
Equipment Loaner Program
The FDOT Traffic Data and Analytics Office has a non-motorized equipment loaner program which allows the District offices to collect and submit short term data.
This data is essential for the non-motorized program's expansion to continuous count locations around the State of Florida.
Participation from the District offices is essential to the program as they know their own areas of bicycle and pedestrian usage of sidewalks, side paths, and shared use paths.
Any local or partnering agency that wants to participate in the loaner program must first have a signed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between FDOT and the partnering agency. Please find the MOA template below.
Please contact Jotan.Borms@dot.state.fl.us for more information.
Statewide Continuous Counts
Statewide, FDOT TDA currently manages multiple non-motorized continuous counters (red stars on the repository map). 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.
