WABI Burien Needs More People for Pedestrian/Bicycle Count this Week
Our friends at WABI Burien need up to 12 more people for their pedestrian/cyclist count this week, which begins Tuesday, Sept. 25.
Beginning Tuesday (Sept. 25) and continuing through Thursday (Sept. 27), WABI is taking part in the statewide count of pedestrians and cyclists by tallying the numbers here in Burien.
“This information is important because it tells the City and State how many of us are on foot or bike, and this, then, figures into transportation planning, policies and infrastructure,” said Maureen Hoffmann, WABI Vice President. “Can you help us get counted? We’re only asking for ONE, 2-HOUR SHIFT from each volunteer (unless you want to do more).”
Maureen adds that these take place at designated intersections around town, and counts will be done during morning commute (7-9 am) and evening commute (4-6 pm) times.
“We want the city and state to know that ‘Gee, there really ARE a bunch of people walking and cycling in town!'” she added.
