2019 Boston Bike Counts

Measuring bicycling in Boston

We count how many people are riding bikes at locations across the City. By 2030, our goal is to increase bicycling fourfold. Counting helps us understand trends and measure our progress.

We collect data on bike counts at locations across the City to capture the number of people riding bikes at different times during the year. In 2019, we took counts in June and September.

2019 Bike Counts

In 2019, we counted bikes in June and again in September. You can find the summary tables for each season below.
