The objective of this research was to assess existing, new, and innovative technologies and methods and provide guidance for transportation practitioners on to how to best collect pedestrian and bicycle volume data. The assessment considered, among other factors, feasibility, availability, quality, reliability, cost, and compatibility. The guidance (i.e., Guidebook) includes methods to (a) efficiently mine and manage existing data sources; (b) acquire and use data from new and innovative technologies; and (c) summarize and disseminate pedestrian and bicycle volume data for site-specific, local, and systemwide needs assessments, project development, and safety management. 
Follow-on activity is being considered and is in development.
