Hey, where did everybody go?

Fremont bike counter chart

Fremont Bike Counter–Super Bowl Traffic 

 

The Fremont bike counter data shows a significant drop in bicycle trips leading up to and during Sunday’s Super Bowl game. This is a good illustration of how bike counter information can help us determine what can cause bike data to fluctuate away from the norm.

The chart shows above normal volumes in the morning and mid-day. Then there’s a big drop off approaching and during the game, followed by higher than normal volumes after the game.

The chart compares average volume for Saturday, Jan. 25, Sunday, Jan. 26, and Saturday, Feb. 1 (which all had favorable weather) to Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2.
