Valladolid City Council installs a Totem bike counter supplied by Dinycon

First data on the use of the bicycle lane on the Paseo de Isabel la Católica in Valladolid.


Last March, Dinycon installed a bicycle and scooter counter in the bike lane of Paseo de Isabel la Católica, together with a Totem with double-sided vision, which indicates the number of cyclists passing through this point and the annual accumulated number.



This instrument comes in addition to the cyclist counters already in place at two points on the cycle lane network at Prado de la Magdalena and Avenida de Salamanca, although it is the first device that allows live visualisation of the number of cyclists using the Isabel la Católica lane.

The information will allow the City Council to measure the use of this lane and to have concrete data to support this municipal action in the face of a controversial issue arising from the elimination of a lane for road traffic that has generated many complaints among private drivers.


The data collected shows a significant flow of cyclists every day, an average of more than 700 cyclists, a figure that has surprised even the most sceptical, who mainly saw the harm of eliminating a lane for cars.


It is estimated that more than 20,000 cyclists and skateboarders use this infrastructure every month; with this data it is possible to know whether the lane is used for commuting to work, comparing working days with public holidays, in which time slots it is most used, the influence of cold or rain on its use, etc.


This deployment will encourage many citizens to use bicycles, with the positive environmental impact that this entails, and will provide the City Council with a tool that will facilitate future actions in this area, based on the data collected, improving the environment and making the city friendlier for the people of Valladolid and its visitors.



Together with this bicycle counting point, a pilot project was installed to measure the flow of people between the Puente de Poniente and the city centre; the whole project provides data on people and bicycle mobility at points of great interest, an innovative aspect as mobility has always been more focused on vehicles; this provides us with a complementary and very interesting vision of the dynamics of the city. The citizen must be at the centre of mobility-related actions; we are thus moving towards the smart city.
