StreetSenseNetwork Project

The StreetSenseNetwork Project is a partnership between DalTRAC and the Halifax Cycling Coalition, with support from Halifax Regional Municipality. It will provide automatically transmitted, publicly accessible baseline information on cyclists and pedestrians for specific locations throughout the municipality. The first counter has been installed on Agricola Street to collect the number of people cycling travelling South.  

The initiative aims to increase the availability and transparency of data for bicycle usage in Halifax. It will be a tremendous resource for bike planning and promotion in the region. The StreetSenseNetwork will be growing over the next few months so check back for data in other locations.

Thumbs Up! Share the Road Nova Scotia

Thumbs Up! Share the Road Nova Scotia is a community-based Share the Road awareness campaign for Nova Scotia. The goal of the campaign is to promote positive behavioural change and safer sharing of the roads for all road users in Nova Scotia - Pedestrians, Cyclists, and Motorists.

Initiated by Dalhousie Transportation Collaboratory (DalTRAC) in 2012, the campaign is the product of extensive research and community consultation. After a review of more than 70 Share the Road campaigns from North America, New Zealand and Australia, DalTRAC and interested communities hosted several community engagement sessions (in Chester, Hubbards, New Glasgow, Pictou, Halifax Regional Municipality and Annapolis County) to generate discussion on sharing the road in both urban and rural contexts, and ideas for what a local Share the Road campaign should look like. Information from the community workshops was used to design a Share the Road awareness campaign for Nova Scotia, which can be adopted by any municipality.
