Cordon Count Survey Edit

Glasgow City Council has undertaken annual surveys since 2007 to evaluate the number of pedestrians and cyclists entering and leaving the city as part of the annual monitoring of active travel patterns. The data presented here are from 2009 onwards. A total of 35 sites form a cordon around the centre of the city and are monitored between 6:00am and 8:00pm over two successive days each September. All pedestrian and cycle movement at these locations, to and from the city, are counted.

The City Centre Cordon Count was undertaken annually between 2009 and 2018. The frequency changed to every 3 years due to the availability of the data produced by the suite of automatic cycle counters. The first count in the new schedule was programmed for 2021 however, a supplementary count was undertaken in 2020 to measure the effects of the global pandemic on active travel within the city cordon.
