Pedestrian Count

In the past, Downtown Portland Clean & Safe has engaged with partners to conduct pedestrian counts in Downtown Portland over a three-day period, two times a year. Now using data to monitor traffic and visit trends 24-hours a day, Clean & Safe has expanded its pedestrian count research to look at the entire 213-block district.

2022 Pedestrian Counts in Downtown Portland

When looking at foot traffic in Downtown during 2022, the number of people Downtown has increased by 25.7% from 2021. We are seeing trends that show that the city is busier than last year, especially in the spring and summer and our local community is comfortable with attending large-scale events, coming downtown for dinner and entertainment, and gathering for large community events. We notably saw the large increase in Downtown pedestrian traffic in early spring and summer with June being the busiest month of the year with 2.26M visits.
