National Monitoring Framework


The National Monitoring Framework project measures the levels of cycling across Scotland.

The National Monitoring Framework uses fixed automatic cycle counters and temporary traffic surveys using cameras, complementing existing monitoring schemes to build a picture of cycling rates across the country.

Since the project began in 2017, we have established 77 automatic cycle counters and currently perform biannual temporary counts at 100 sites across Scotland, working in partnership with all 32 local authorities.

All data can be accessed on our:

The National Monitoring Framework is funded by Transport Scotland and does not require financial contribution from those who take part.
