Bike lane statistics for Hornby, Dunsmuir and Burrard 2009-2012

This dataset provides daily bike volume data from Burrard Bridge, Dunsmuir Viaduct and locations on Hornby and Dunsmuir streets between 2009 and 2012.

Measuring travel times

Vehicle travel time data collection involves City staff driving a passenger vehicle along a study corridor with the general flow of traffic. Staff record the times when their vhicle enters and exits the study area. Numerous runs are made by staff at different times of day.

Measuring cyclist volumes

On Dunsmuir Street and Hornby Street we are using portable bike counters which utilize pneumatic hoses, similar to equipment to count vehicles. These are used on bike routes throughout the city to collect bicycle volumes and have had their accuracy validated using manual counts.

On the Burrard Bridge and Dunsmuir Viaduct, bicycles are counted using wire loops fixed to the bike lanes that detect the metal wheels passing over the loops. They are designed and built to ignore the effects of larger metal objects such as cars and trucks. We have checked and calibrated this equipment using counts done by staff on site.


More recent monthly statistics for the bicycle facilities are currently available in PDF format only.
