Technicians from the Public Transport and Movement Company (EPTC) will carry out bicycle travel counts along the capital. The objective of the action is to map the number of cyclists and obtain data for the installation of future cycle routes, besides the qualification of the existing ones.
The measurement will take place through a mobile equipment, donated by Itaú (company sponsor of the Bike Poa project), which can be installed on both roads and bike paths.”It has ties that are placed on the asphalt, not counting motor vehicles, only bicycles. From this, a software will pass the data and we can evaluate the profile, schedules of greater and lesser circulation, as well as the demand, if there are many or few cyclists in the place”, says the manager of Special Projects of the EPTC, Antônio Vigna.
The first test of the equipment, held on April 22, on the bike path Ipiranga, near Azenha had 280 cyclists circling, between 15h and 19h. Research data will also be made available to non-governmental organizations, associations and those interested in the subject. The first routes that will have cyclist counts in the next few days will be Ipiranga avenue and José do Patrocínio street (both have bike paths).
Ciclovias-Porto Alegre has 25 kilometers of exclusive spaces for those who use cycling. The implementations of the bicycle lanes began in 2009, with the creation of the Cicloviário Master Plan. The most recent point is the Érico Veríssimo bicycle lane, 500 meters long, which connects the cycle paths of José do Patrocínio and Ipiranga. In addition, the city has 40 stations and 400 shared bikes in the BikePoa system.
