City of Toronto Bicycle Count Data – Plotted on Line Graphs

B

Ward 30 Bikes asked the City of Toronto Open Data portal for any Bike Count Data they had for Ward 30.

We received five data sets:

  • Martin Goodman Trail East (5 days)
  • Lake Shore / Logan (9 days)
  • Lower Don Trail at Queen Street Bridge (6 days)
  • Bloor & Castle Frank (1 day)

(received but not included in this article is the “East Don Trail” data at Wynford Heights Crescent near Eglinton Avenue)

Her’s a Map showing the locations of the Count data that Open Data sent us.

Used the excel data table to make 9 graphs of 3 days of the data at three locations – the 10th graph image is produced by Transportation Services. It represents 24 hours of data collection at Bloor & Castle Frank on  July 23 2010;  I’ve annotated the image of it with the necessary reference information that was also part of the Transportation Division’s .pdf.

The data comes in .xls tables – like this one:

Also of some relevance to Ward 30 is the 2010 Bicycle Screen Count – that info is at this link at the bottom of the page.

Martin Goodman Trail East

The “Martin Goodman Trail East” file contains data for July 1st to 5th, 2013 – 24 hour data collection on the Martin Goodman Trail at Coxwell Ave – Eastbound and Westbound.

Plotted is July 1st, 2nd and 3rd – on three line graphs:
