TRPA and local partners monitor bicycle and pedestrian activity throughout the Region to understand high use areas, mode-split, and support grant applications and reporting. Count information also informs policies and programs targeted to improve and support active transportation.

Program Overview
Bicycle and Pedestrian

In 2015, as part of the update to the Active Transportation Plan, TRPA developed the Lake Tahoe Region Bicycle and Pedestrian Monitoring Protocol using best industry practices and national experts Kittleson & Associates. TRPA began implementation in summer of 2015, which built on and integrated previous monitoring efforts. In partnership with local agencies, TRPA has established a system for the collection of year-round active transportation data which includes permanent counting stations, biennial count locations, and spot count locations depending on need. During the first two years of implementation, TRPA produced a bicycle and pedestrian monitoring report which analyzes historical trends, provides detailed information by location, and compares use at similar sites. This report also supplemented the regional transportation monitoring report. Moving forward, all analysis and up-to-date data will be available on the transportation monitoring dashboard, in lieu of a hardcopy report.

Bike - Ped Trail User Model
Excel (XLSX)
The Bike Trail User Model estimates bicycle and pedestrian use on shared-use paths and bike lanes at Lake Tahoe. The model is based on observed facility use, characteristics of individual facilities, and user demographics and travel behaviors. See attached documents below for instructions on how to use the model and for a full model demonstration.
