Bicycle Count History

The Capital Regional that incorporates Victoria and suburban muncipalities on southern Vancouver Island conducts bicycle counts to supplement surveys and other infromation gathered from municipal engineering departments. As the project repeats the value of the information will increase, showing patterns of growth or challenges in the transportation network that need to be addressed. Some local information indicates that roads and routes improved for cycling show dramatic increases in bicycle traffic, confirming the value of infrastructure investments.
