Call for Volunteers: Summer Bike Count!

Last summer's bike count was a great success! Already it is informing decisions about bicycle infrastructure, funding, and future demand.

And it's time to do it again! Help document the way biking is growing in Salem. We need volunteers to count bicycles at key intersections in the area. Counts are performed on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, and occur during rush hour - either between 7am and 9am, or between 4pm and 6pm.

If you'd like to participate, we have free pizza and soda for you! On Wednesday, June 24th at 5pm, the City of Salem, Salem-Keizer Area Transit Study, and Mid-Willamette Valley Bicycle Transportation Alliance will hold a training and orientation. It will last about an hour. Please RSVP to salembikes [at] gmail [dot] com.
