Bike Count Volunteers Needed by NOACA

The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) is looking for volunteers to help conduct its annual bicycle counts the week of September 12, 2011. The program helps the organization to:
  • Measure the use of existing bikeways
  • Estimate the public demand for more bike facilities
  • Set priorities for proposed bike projects and suggest future project locations
  • Create policies for spending public dollars effectively for all travel modes
Success is not possible without your help! NOACA will be counting bikes at locations throughout Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, and Medina counties.

Volunteers must be available for one of the following orientations sessions:
  • Tuesday, September 6, 2011, 5:30pm, or
  • Wednesday, September 7, 2011, 5:30pm
Both orientation sessions will be held at the NOACA offices at 1299 Superior Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114.

Bike counts will be held during the following days and times at various locations:
  • Tuesday, September 13, 2011 from 5:00 - 7:00pm
  • Wednesday, September 14, 2011 from 5:00 - 7:00pm
  • Thursday, September 15, 2011 from 5:00 - 7:00pm
  • Saturday, September 17, 2011 from 11:00am - 1:00pm
Preference will be given to volunteers who are available for all four count days; volunteers available for two count days will also be accepted. Volunteers will be reimbursed for travel costs getting to and from their assigned count locations.

To sign up for an orientation session and a counting time slot, please go to to fill out a short survey.

If you have any questions about the bike count program, please contact Marc Von Allmen at or 216-241-2414 x250.

NOACA thanks you in advance for your assistance!
