City of San Francisco 2010 Bicycle Count Report

Share this:
In August 2006, the SFMTA Bicycle Program conducted its first citywide bicycle count, with the goal of establishing a baseline of bicycling use in the City. Since then, the SFMTA has continued with bicycle counts in the first three weeks of August. The data gathered from the last five years has enabled the SFMTA to identify and measure some basic trends in bicycle ridership throughout San Francisco. The bicycle counts also inform the ongoing bicycle planning efforts in the City, providing data needed to evaluate the efficacy and efficiency of the City's bicycle network, as well as identifying locations where there is a need for additional infrastructure improvements.
