Calling all volunteers: It’s not too late to help with Washington’s seventh annual bicycle and pedestrian count taking place Sept. 30 – Oct. 2 in cities across the state.

In 2013, about 275 volunteers counted more than 66,000 people who walked or biked to their destination. This year, about 400 volunteers are needed in more than 40 cities planning to participate in the annual survey.

The Washington State Department of Transportation and Cascade Bicycle Club began recruiting volunteers in mid-August to tally the number of people bicycling and walking along paths, bike lanes, sidewalks and trails. 

“We appreciate all the volunteers who have already signed up, including Transportation Secretary Lynn Peterson. There’s still time to get involved,” said Paula Reeves, WSDOT community design manager. “The volunteers’ counts help us measure the results of bicycle and sidewalk investments and better plan for future projects.”

Anyone interested in helping can sign up online. For more information, visit WSDOT’s survey website, email the Cascade Bicycle Club or call 206-861-9890
