Roadway designs and signal phasing that address the safety of all road users are being implemented in many cities around the country. As part of this, accurate methods for estimating pedestrian volumes are needed to quantify exposure and, in turn, evaluate the benefits of pedestrian safety measures. TRB hosted a webinar on Tuesday, September 27, 2022 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that presented pedestrian safety, operations, service quality analysis methods, and volume counting techniques. Presenters covered new tools for evaluating the effects of pedestrian crossing safety countermeasures on pedestrian satisfaction and delay. 

This webinar is based on NCHRP Report 992: Guide to Pedestrian Analysis.

This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program.

The slides are available. Please contact for a link to the recording. There may be a $90 fee.
