An invitation for our Executive Director:

I want to cordially invite you to our third installment of our BIKE Talks series: Count Dat

The Count Dat concept began almost 2 years ago when a few of us began looking at all the data being collected through different counters around the city, and began brainstorming on the best ways to share this information with the public and gain a better understanding of how folks get around, whether walking or biking.  What started as a passion project, turned into a grant application that lead to a series of monthly reports and resources we are making available to the public.  I hope this can help us all become better advocates for safer streets.

Join us next Wednesday, November 1st from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm at The Shop at the CAC (900 Camp Street).  For more details, click here.


Together, we will discuss:

  • Changes in how (and how many) people are walking and bicycling around our city over time.
  • Reduction in carbon emissions resulting from non-automobile trips.
  • Trends in walking and bicycling rates for festivals, Mardi Gras, and other events.
  • How increase in local walk and bike rates have impacted crash rates.
  • How bike share utilization patterns can tell where, and how locals and visitors move around the network.
