Super results for counts in NSW

12 March 2015. Early figures from last week’s Super Tuesday count shown large numbers of riders commuting to work in Sydney.

The busiest site counted was Kent Street at Clarence Street which saw 1803 bicycle movements in the 2 hour period.

Super Tuesday is a visual count of riders in the morning peak between 7 am and 9 am. This year bikes were counted in more than 800 locations in Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and South Australia.

Results will be flowing in for some time. The data is then analysed—before being provided to the municipalities that have participated in the count.

The information is used to inform decisions about transport planning and bike infrastructure investment.

33% of the Kent Street site riders were women. This compares to an average female percentage of 17% from other count sites in Sydney and highlights the importance of separated bicycle infrastructure for NSW to get more people, particularly women riding.
