South San Francisco, CA  August 11, 2019 Submitted by Julia Malmo-Laycock Sustainability Specialist: Active Transportation

 

The National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation (NBPD) Project is a nationwide effort to provide data collection and ongoing data for use by planners, governments, and the general public. For 2019, the count period is September 10th — 15th. The County of San Mateo needs dedicated volunteers like you to help with the in-field data collection. This means that you get to be outside enjoying a couple of hours in the beautiful, mid-peninsula weather while recording those who walk and bike past. Each shift is two hours and you can indicate your location and time preferences. Please note that depending on the number of applications we receive for specific locations, we may not be able to accommodate your preferred count location.

How to participate:

  1. Register here: https://forms.gle/RHMB5NdxZ6J63Z4e9 After registering, we will send a volunteer packet via email with your assigned count locations and times based on your noted preferences (allow up to three weeks for this).
  2. Attend the training webinar or view the webinar recording. The live webinar is currently scheduled for August 29th from 12pm to 12:30pm. A recording of the webinar will be available early September.
  3. Count at your designated site, date and time.
  4. Send results to the Office of Sustainability within 72 hours of your last count date.
