Give One Hour to Support Somerville Bike and Pedestrian Efforts

With just one hour of your time, you too can help us work toward ever safer and better pedestrian and bike travel in Somerville. Mayor Curtatone, the Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development, and community partners are looking for volunteers to help with the city’s Fall bike and pedestrian counting project. 

The collected data helps us identify pedestrian and cyclist trends at 36 locations throughout Somerville. This data is incredibly important for project planning, fundraising, and identification of future needs. As mentioned, it only takes one hour of counting at an intersection of your choice. And you know you've been saying you really ought to volunteer for something, right?

The one hour of counting must take place between 7:15 and 8:45 a.m. or between 4:45 and 6:15 p.m. on one of the following days:
  • Tuesday, September 18
  • Wednesday, September 19
  • Thursday, September 20
  • Tuesday, September 25
  • Wednesday, September 26
  • Thursday, September 27

If you have any trouble with this page, please call or email.
Make sure to include your email address when signing up.
Volunteers are able and encouraged to do more than one hour and/or day!

More information on the project, as well as past data collected and presentations on findings can be found on the Bicycle andPedestrian Counting Program page of the City of Somerville’s website.

Thank you for your help!
