AURIN continues to work with data partners in unlocking data that enables Australia’s researchers to conduct their research efficiently and effectively.
Run by Bicycle Network, Super Tuesday is Australia’s largest visual bike count, where volunteer counters observe and record cyclist numbers across Australia. This data is collected within 97 councils and over 1,500 sites. This makes the Super Bike Counts, Australia’s largest cycling survey of its kind.
AURIN and ANDS are proud to partner with Bicycle Network as they have used a consistent methodology across Australia to collect consistent figures on cycling participation. The data can also be used to compliment research across disciplines by providing a broader picture of cycling trends at both a local and national scale. This outcome is in line with both AURIN and ANDS’s vision of making quality data accessible for government and academic researchers
Log on to the AURIN Portal and choose your area of interest. Filter by intersection or time of day, map peak times or explore gender biases. This data can be interrogated alongside the thousands of other datasets already available through the AURIN Portal across all research disciplines, helping the researcher, planner or policy maker make good decisions based on sound evidence.
Bicycle Network’s goals of being committed, honest, inclusive and progressive have led to the release of this data. Leading the way in data sharing for the benefit of all Australians. AURIN’s work in curating the metadata and funding provided by ANDS makes this enormous dataset easily read and interpreted.
