Madison’s Electronic Bike Counter

Madison’s Electronic Bike Counter

Posted on Nov 7th 2014 | Bike Life, Blog,

The City of Madison installed its first visual electronic bicycle counter just under a month ago on October 9th. It’s located on the heavily trafficked Southwest Path near UW-Madison’s Camp Randall. The counter tallies bicyclists that pass over loops embedded in the path. Two counts are tallied on the counter. Near the top is the count for the day and below is a display that shows the number of bicyclists that have passed by cumulatively for the year. Since the activation date 30,370 cyclists have been counted!
