Collecting Data

  • Neighbourhood Walkability Audit. Take a tour of your community with your class to see how walkable the neighbourhood is.
  • BikeWalkRoll – Our 30 second classroom surveys help everyone understand how students travel to school across Manitoba. To complete a survey on BikeWalkRoll, simply ask the students in your class how they traveled to school, and record the various modes of transportation.
  • CounterPoint – Designed to count bicycles, pedestrians and all forms of traffic, for better planning. Counting traffic is a normal part of planning transportation, but right now, not everyone gets counted. We are changing that. Get your class involved in counting all the different transportation modes around the school neighbourhood.
