Who Gets Counted Counts!

 

Thanks to your help, we have filled over 85% of our volunteer shifts for the bike and ped count, which means we just need roughly 60 shifts covered. We started with 438 shifts, and together with Los Angeles Walks, we’re getting closer to making sure that bikes and peds get counted.

Remember the L.A. Bike & Ped Count is next week:

  • Tuesday, September 10, 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
  • Tuesday, September 10, 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, September 14, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
How you can help:

1. Sign Up to Volunteer!

We have over 100 locations (see map) all across the City of Los Angeles, and there are three count times for each one. We’ve filled hundreds of volunteer shifts, but still need 60 shifts covered, especially for the Tuesday afternoon shift. Please sign up soon! Here is a general overview of were our needs lie:
Tuesday, September 10, 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. – Only 10 shifts left to fill, all in the Valley (Sun Valley, Pacoima, Winnetka) or Watts.
Tuesday, September 10, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. – We need a lot of afternoon volunteers! Several Valley (Panorama City, Sun Valley, Pacoima, NoHo) and South L.A. shifts left. All 4 Westwood/UCLA shifts are open. Other open Westside shifts in Palms, Beverly Hills, and Playa Vista.

Saturday, September 14, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. – We need a lot of weekend volunteers! Several South L.A. shifts left. One in the Valley (Pacoima). We also still have shifts available in DTLA, Eagle Rock, USC, Palms, and Playa Vista.

Sign up for a count shift!

All volunteers will get a super fresh Bike & Ped Count t-shirt and an exclusive invite to our bumpin’ post-count volunteer party! Additionally, for each shift you sign up for and complete, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win an electric bike and other prizes. And for anyone you refer to the count (have people type in your name as a referral on VolunterSpot), you’ll receive an additional entry.
1a. Sign Up to Attend a Volunteer Orientation! – We’ve added a Monday training
After you’ve signed up for a shift, sign up for a Volunteer Orientation. We’ve changed the method for data collection for this count, so all volunteers are required to attend an orientation, even if you’ve done bike & ped counts with us in the past. Note that you don’t have to sign up for an orientation in your count area. All orientations will be the same – just sign up for the location that is most convenient for you.
  • *JUST ADDED* Monday, September 9, 3:00 p.m. – Community Health Councils – 3731 Stocker St., Los Angeles, 90008 (South)

2. Spread the Word.

Share this link or our Facebook event with your friends and encourage them to join in on the bike and ped count fun! Also, feel free to pass around this half-sheet flier.

 

3. Donate to the Bicycle and Pedestrian Count.

It takes time, energy, and resources to make the bicycle and pedestrian count happen! It costs roughly $25 to fund a count location, and we have over 120 locations this year. Make a donation to LACBC for a donation that really goes a long way and counts.

 

Thank you to our amazing sponsors: Pocrass & de Los ReyesFehr & PeersStantec, and Flying Pigeon.

 

Thank you to our individual donors who have sponsored an intersection: Bruce Chan, Kevin Burton, and John Hall!
