- WHAT IS THE CORDON COUNT PROGRAM? - The Cordon Count Program involves counting vehicles crossing selected stations over a 15-hour period from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Information collected also includes vehicle type and occupancy. The 2014 program included 128 stations, most of which were located on municipal, Regional or other physical boundaries. The 2014 Cordon Count represents a partial count. The last full count year was 2011. The Program was undertaken during April to May and October.
- STATIONS, SCREENLINES & CORDONS - A series of successive counting stations were grouped to form a “screenline”. A “cordon” refers to a geographic area enclosed by a set of screenlines. The map on this page shows the Region of Peel’s stations and screenlines counted in 2014.
- BENEFITS OF THE PROGRAM - Cordon Count data is used by both the Region and area municipalities for setting transportation policy and determining transportation infrastructure investments. The Program database is used to forecast future vehicle volumes as well as transit ridership. The Region uses the data to validate the Region of Peel Travel Demand Forecasting Model.
