Cyclist Surveys

  Cyclist Movement Surveys Surveys can be conducted to determine bicycle volume, classification, duration and path.
  • Bicycle mode counts can categorise riders based upon age and gender or other points of interest
  • Origin-destination of cyclists can be determined using one or several techniques:
    • GPS tracking
    • Bluetooth or WiFi tracking
    • Interviews/questionnaires
  • Parking duration or accumulation of bikes at facilities such as:

    • Intersections
    • Midblock
    • At other road crossing points of interest
  • Utilisation audits to determine patronage, track and tail counts.
  • Count of bikes at specific locations.

    • Rail crossings

  • Speed of cyclist on and off road, especially joint use pathways
  • Travel times
  • Headway and gap acceptance of bikes and cars - can a cyclist cross a road in a reasonable time? Can a pedestrian ?
  • Time delay experienced by cyclist at various interface points
