North Carolina’s Non-Motorized Volume Data Program (NMVDP)

ITRE manages the North Carolina Non-Motorized Volume Data Program (NC NMVDP) for the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). The NC NMVDP began as a research project to test a bicycle and pedestrian count protocol for replication across the state. The program currently includes one of the most extensive statewide networks of continuous bicycle and pedestrian counting sensors and provides data management and reporting support for multiple local agency partners.
