Methods of accounting the cycling intensity: Advantages and disadvantages




Bicycle traffic monitoring, Urban infrastructure, Bicycle traffic, Bicycle rental, Non-motorized vehicles


In the paper, manual and automated methods as to accounting for traffic intensity are considered. They are evaluated from the point of view of their possible use under various conditions: traffic intensity, types and tasks of measurements, and the necessarily detailed information. Based on a study of the intensity of cycling in Moscow, it was concluded that in a metropolis with an insufficiently developed bicycle infrastructure, manual metering will be the best method of accounting. In addition to the manual method, mobile app data and bike rental statistics should be used.
