The City of Roanoke, with assistance from the Roanoke Valley Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (RVAMPO), is participating in the 2013 National Bicycle & Pedestrian Documentation (NBPD) Project.
Volunteers are needed to conduct manual counts of bicyclists and pedestrians at locations throughout the City of Roanoke during specified time(s). Official 2013 NBPD counts will be conducted at each location on one (1) weekday and one (1) weekend day as follows:
- Thursday September 12, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
- Rain date: Wednesday September 18
- Saturday September 14, 12:00 – 2:00 pm
- Rain date: Sunday September 15
Each count period is 2 hours in duration, plus additional time to set up prior to conducting count (10 minutes or so). Volunteers will receive NBPD Project training and all requisite data collection materials (instructions, data collection sheets, pens, safety vest, etc.) prior to count date(s). Upon completion of the Volunteer sign-up form, the count manager will contact you, via email, to confirm your participation and provide training and related information. Volunteers will be assigned a count location once confirmed.
The 2012 NBPD was the initial year of City of Roanoke participation in the NBPD which will be conducted annually each September. Click here to view the City of Roanoke 2012 NBPD report. Additional information is available at www.rvarc.org/bike.
