Want to come see some exciting new research into children's mobility happening right here in Winnipeg? 

As part of their 4th year transportation engineering training, in a course led by Dr. Jeannette Montufar in partnership with Green Action Centre and the City of Winnipeg68 local civil engineering students are assessing 17 local schools across 3 school divisions, looking for ways to make it easier, safer and more convenient to bike, walk or roll to school. 

The Engineering students have had a semester to research, study, consult and analyze - and they are ready to share some of their findings. The project is also serving as a demonstration of the value our just-released CounterPoint traffic counting app and, excitingly, a testing hotbed for our second software tool - this one designed to revolutionize origin destination analysis (using Hands Up attendance time "How did you Get Here?" surveys and, ultimately, enlisting the help of kids everywhere). 

Come see for yourself.
