How did you get to school today? Our 30 second surveys help 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 transport. This can be conducted through a simple hands up survey, or any other method that you may find easier.
The five transports modes to record are:
*Wheelchairs, skateboards, scooters, and roller blades
We recommend two options for inputting this data: 1) record the information from the survey on paper and input later, or 2) directly add the information into the app as you conduct the survey. Please note that the transport mode recorded should be the one employed for the majority of the trip. To enter your survey data, you can either hit the “Add a school” button or you can find your school on the map.
Enter the data by typing in the number of students who employed each travel mode into the corresponding mode. After all travel modes have been accounted for, select “Enter”, and watch as the site generates a score for your school. You can then compare this score to other schools in Winnipeg and across the world!
Counterpoint was developed to make it easier to count bicycles, pedestrians and all forms of traffic. For better planning. For a better future. Start counting today.
Counting traffic is a normal part of planning transportation, but right now, not everyone gets counted. We are changing that. If you want bike lanes on your street, for example, counting traffic is one of the best ways to get started.
Who is using our roads and how? We need to understand the problem to create solutions. Counting traffic – even once – sets a baseline. That baseline can be analysed, tested and compared. Counting again later lets us test traffic solutions and prove whether they are working.
Planners, road engineers, doctors and politicians – we all need information to make good decisions. So do you. We made counterpoint for everyone. Whether you’re a student, an architect, a member of a bike group or anything in between, counting traffic helps and it will only make things better.
