City of Chicago central area pedestrian counts are available on-line
The City of Chicago has published Central Area pedestrian counts for 2007. The counts are available in a report format on the Chicago Department of Transportation’s pedestrian count study website, or as a layer in the City of Chicago’s interactive traffic map service. The interactive service allows users to click on the count for details. Many pedestrian counts in the Central Area are available down to the block-face level. The data facilitates a more complete picture of how people get about in central Chicago, including on foot. The data will be useful not only for traffic and transit planners, but also for businesses and real estate professionals wishing to assess foot traffic in location decisions.
