City of Columbia Bicyclist & Pedestrian Counts report

May 1, 2024

The City of Columbia is proud to release a report detailing the analysis of data collected from the City’s periodic Bicyclist & Pedestrian Counts. These counts began in 2014 in conjunction with the Walk Bike Columbia Master Plan planning process. Since then, ten counts have been conducted which have studied bicyclist and pedestrian patterns at 58 locations throughout Columbia. In total, volunteers have counted nearly 50,000 pedestrians and over 2,500 cyclists. The data these counts have provided has helped to better understand the needs of pedestrians and cyclists in Columbia and assisted in prioritizing and installing bicycle and pedestrian safety infrastructure.
