Webinar recording: A better way to collect ped and bike data

Cities are growing vertically rather than horizontally, and infrastructure and transportation design is out of step with current and future transportation demand. There are lots of theories about the best way to create a bikeable and walkable city, but who has time to go looking for them?

Join us on February 21st at 1pm EST to learn about the challenges that planning departments and cities face with getting access to high quality traffic data that’s foundational to the development of a walkable and bikeable city.

We’re also very excited to have Kristen O’Toole from Alta Planning + Design joining us on the webinar. She will not only talk about their vision around active transportation planning, design, and implementation, but specifically about data collection and how Datalink and the ped/bike data produced has been used successfully within their organization.

In this webinar we'll cover:

  • How to justify the need for bikeable and walkable infrastructure
  • The challenges faced when trying to justify the need for change
  • The role of technology in developing bikeable and walkable cities
  • How one of our customer’s, Alta Planning + Design uses ped/bike data
  • DataLink and the benefits of an end-to-end traffic data platform
