Last Updated: 2/25/2015

The City of Roseville Public Works Department is looking for volunteers to help with the bicycle/pedestrian count project, which involves periodic counts of bicyclists and pedestrians at locations throughout the city. This information is important for understanding Roseville's biking and walking trends. Contact us if you are interested in volunteering. 

Time Commitment: Volunteers are expected to attend one 1-hour training meeting and conduct at least one count over a 2 hour window of time. Total time commitment (when factoring travel to site and fingerprinting) is approximately 5 hours.

Count Date/Times: 

  • Saturday, April 11, 10 a.m. - Noon 
  • Tuesday, April 14, 7 - 9 a.m., OR 5 - 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 15, 7 - 9 a.m., OR 5 - 7 p.m. 

Training Meeting: Training is scheduled Friday, April 10 - 11 a.m. in the Alternative Transportation office at 401 Vernon Street.

Job Description: Volunteers will fill in a tally form marking how many bicyclists and pedestrians cross a given point. Volunteers may also fill in additional information such as whether or not bicyclists are wearing a helmet. Also attached is a volunteer job description. All supplies will be provided by the City.

Purpose of Counts: The purpose of the counts is to:

  • Implement Bicycle Master Plan, which calls for counts as part of the evaluation of our program. The counts would be conducted over time to see any changes/trends.  
  • Enhance Roseville's status as a Bicycle Friendly Community.  
  • Implement Safe Routes to School (SRTS) grant, which requires before/after counts & evaluation.  
  • Support grant application proposals.
