Bicycle and scooter counting information totem in Valladolid

Among some of the effects caused by the covid-19 pandemic, we have seen a very significant change in relation to our mobility habits. In particular, the use of bicycles skyrocketed by over 300% in just a few months, according to the Association of Brands and Bicycles of Spain (AMBE). Based on this phenomenon, some municipalities are beginning to measure the use of bicycle lanes and obtain concrete data to support decision-making for the deployment of these infrastructures, thus encouraging citizens and visitors to use bicycles and reduce CO2 emissions, improving the environment.

The Valladolid City Council decided to install a counting system in the bike lane of the Paseo de Isabel la Católica, one of the busiest arteries of the city, with an information totem that displays the number of cyclists and scooters that use this lane daily and the annual accumulated.
