Better Naito Bike Count


Throughout Better Naito, the Portland Bureau of Transportation gathered data by field observations from volunteers as well as Bluetooth, video, and manual counts.

971 people used the #BetterNaito hashtag to voice their opinion publicly. This live feedback was groundbreaking in monitoring the success and use of our bicycle and pedestrian lane.

In addition, we gathered numbers with tube counters. Below, changes in commute pattern represent the amount of cyclists channeled away from pedestrian areas in the Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
