Reports and studies
- MnDOT Strategic Plan for Counting People Walking and Bicycling (PDF) - This is presents short- and long-term goals, strategies, and actions for how MnDOT can advance it’s Pedestrian and Bicyclist Data Program to prioritize investments on its own system of facilities as well as expand broader statewide practices for incorporating pedestrian and bicyclist volume data on all facilities and in coordination with local partners.
- Minnesota’s 2017 Walking and Bicycling Data Report (PDF) - The latest statewide analysis of people walking and bicycling between 2014 and 2017.
- Pedestrian and Bicyclist Data (Excel) - This file contains daily people volumes collected with automated counting equipment at 22 reference sites across Minnesota between 2014 and 2019. Since people bicycling and walking are impacted by weather and climate more than people driving motorized vehicles, day-of-year factors which account for daily changes in temperature and precipitation, are used to correct outliers and “impute” (e.g. estimate) missing data.
- Data collection manual (PDF) - A Minnesota-specific manual for collecting bicycle and pedestrian data
- Economic bicycling study - A study detailing the economic impact of bicycling in Minnesota. Produced by MnDOT, Minnesota Department of Health and the University of MN.
