Volunteers Needed for Spring Bike/Ped Counts
The Missoula Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is looking for volunteers to help with this spring's bicycle and pedestrian traffic counts. The counts will take place on:
Saturday, May 8, from noon to 2 p.m.
Tuesday, May 11, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Volunteer training sessions will take place on Tuesday, May 4 at noon and Thursday, May 6 at 2 p.m. on Zoom
How many Missoulians are traveling on foot and by bike? Do more people make the choice if they have a paved trail or safer intersection to use? The MPO conducts bicycle and pedestrian traffic counts twice each year to track our success in promoting bicycling and walking trips. The counts are the work of Missoula’s Metropolitan Planning Organization, which manages transportation planning. The counts help measure success by helping us understand where, when and how much our trails, sidewalks and bike facilities are used. Knowing what routes bicyclists and pedestrians choose today informs decisions about what kinds of improvements we will need in the future. We rely on volunteers to help us conduct these counts at nearly 30 locations across the city.
Sign up to volunteer here we will contact you with all necessary information.
Missoula Connect, our long-range transportation plan, is rooted in community values and engagement. We’ve worked with our project committees and Missoula area residents, gathering feedback over the last year. This past summer and fall, we developed a framework to identify and prioritize projects for funding and implementation. This framework includes five steps, and we are ready for your input on Step 5: Recommended Projects. Click here to learn view the project lists & maps.
