In 2022, the City collected data at 35 intersections with the help of volunteers, and they are hoping to surpass this number this year. The Long Beach Bike and Pedestrian Count has been running since 2008, making it one of the longest-standing counts of its kind in the country.

The data collected during these counts provide important information for transportation planners and traffic engineers to make informed decisions about the City's transportation network. It is used to measure the effectiveness and popularity of specific types of bikeways, as well as supplement safety statistics so that targeted public safety campaigns can be launched.
