Asheville: August 15, 2023: The City’s Transportation Department is gearing up for its Annual Pedestrian/Bike Count
to take place again this year.

Each year, the counts are held the week after Labor Day. Counts are taken on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Saturday. This year, the dates are Sept 12th – 14th & 16th. The hours are on weekday mornings from 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. or afternoons from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. On Saturday, counts are from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. Data collected helps staff identify bike/pedestrian trends and also helps in the implementation of the recently adopted GAP Plan.

Volunteers are the backbone of this effort. No special skills or previous experience is required to volunteer.

Community members can sign up to volunteer in a couple of different ways:

Text 2023count to 73224 

We will do our best to assign volunteers based on their location preferences but ask that folks have some flexibility. Community members are encouraged to sign up by early September. 

All volunteers that complete their shift and submit the data they collected will be entered into a random drawing to receive a free annual membership from The Flying Bike (Thank you to The Flying Bike!). 

After signing up, City staff will reach out within several days with a confirmation email and the next steps. If you have any questions, feel free to email Anna Sexton (
