It is beneficial to collect data on active transport for multiple reasons

Planning infrastructure development

Provides valuable data for urban planners, transportation authorities, and policymakers to understand the demand and usage of walking and cycling infrastructure.

Safety assessment

Helps identify areas with high pedestrian and cyclist volumes, allowing authorities to assess safety concerns and prioritise safety improvements.

Evaluate Effectiveness of Initiatives

Evaluating the impact and effectiveness of initiatives aimed at promoting walking and cycling helps guide future decision-making and resource allocation.

Public Health & Environmental Benefits

Helps measure the health and environmental benefits associated with increased walking and cycling. 

The benefits of monitoring active transport are clear; it plays a crucial role in understanding usage patterns, improving infrastructure, enhancing safety, evaluating initiatives, and promoting sustainable and healthy modes of transportation. 

But how do we measure active transport?
