Pedestrian Count

Twice each year, pedestrian traffic is counted at key intersections during peak hours within the Downtown Portland Clean & Safe District and compared to previous counts to see how activity changes. The counts measure the foot traffic entering each intersection, and is conducted by contracted individuals using directional counting boards to track the number of pedestrians entering from each direction for a 12-hour period. The information is compared to previous counts within the district and individually by intersection to gauge how activity changes.
