Pedestrian Planning

Walking is the most essential mode of transportation as everyone is a pedestrian at some point in the day. Improving the safety and comfort of pedestrians in Montgomery County is a key element of transportation planning in Montgomery County.


Pedestrian Counts

The Montgomery County Planning Department collects pedestrian volumes at intersections as part of the development review and the master planning process. A small (but growing) number of pedestrian counts can be found on the department’s intersection analysis application.

Walk Audit Toolkit

A pedestrian audit is an in-person effort by a group of people to assess pedestrian safety, accessibility and comfort in a given area. The Walk Audit Toolkit was created to help community members identify and build consensus on issues affecting pedestrians.
