Automated Counter Loan Program

The Active Transportation Resource Center (ATRC) supports the collection of and maintenance of pedestrian and bicycle related data. The goal of the Automated Counter Loan Program Pilot is to make available automated pedestrian and bicycle counters for agencies to borrow so they may meet the minimum expectations for conducting user counts. By collecting counts, agencies will meet requirements and have the ability to better evaluate active transportation projects funded through the Active Transportation Program (ATP).
