Volunteers Needed: LACBC Bike Counts in Glendale

Bicycle counts are used to track the number of cyclists at key
intersections. This is used to understand year-to-year changes in
cycling as policy and infrastructure changes. Bicycle counts are basic
city planning tools that help change policy to encourage cycling. Most
major US and European cities have them. This will be LA’s first, and we
plan to do it right while having a good time!
