Pedestrian Counts

TransAnalyst provides bi-directional volume data for sidewalks, paths, venue entrances, or retail locations. Pedestrian classifications include Minor, Adult, Elderly, Mobility Impaired, etc. Call times for pedestrian crossings data can also be provided – based on request.

Pedestrian counts are used to evaluate sidewalk and crosswalk needs, to justify pedestrian signals, and to time traffic signals. Persons of grade school age or younger are classified as children. The observer records the direction of each pedestrian crossing the roadway. The pedestrian count is a simple, relatively inexpensive way to measure the volume and direction of pedestrian traffic in the CBD through time and by location. As such, it provides quantitative data to evaluate the need for and effectiveness of various pedestrian planning measures at particular places in the downtown area.
