L.A. Bike & Ped Count

The LA River Corp is an official partner of the LA City Bike+Ped Count. This is the largest source of data on the numbers of people that walk and bike on Los Angeles streets (and rivers and creeks). The data collected demonstrates year-over-year increases in the numbers of people biking and walking, particularly where the city has installed new and improved infrastructure, and helps make the case for further investment in our communities.

We need your help to count on and along the L.A. River on September 16th and 19th! Please see the below locations and times for the shifts. All of our volunteers will receive awesome T-shirts and LA River swag (maybe some 2020 IPA)...
