Tri-County Regional Planning Commission is pleased to announce the Spring 2018 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Counts will take place during the following dates and times: 


·  Sunday, May 13, 12-2 p.m.

·  Wednesday, May 16, 4-6 p.m.


·  Thursday, May 17, 4-6 p.m.

The counts, conducted exclusively by volunteers, provide vital data to our region’s planners, decision makers, and anyone else interested in making walking and biking safer and more convenient in the HATS Region. The count locations were determined as a cooperative effort between HATS planning staff, the HATS Bike/Ped Task Force, and other local stakeholders.



The counts are being done as part of the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation project. For more information on NBPD in general, click here.
