On the Federal Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program: 2014 Report "Annual Count"

the Fed. numbers don't exactly correspond 3,820 5,393 5,588 6,373 7,032 6,097 5,841

 * = Data unavailable.  SOURCE http://www.walkbikemarin.org/documents/CountsSurveys/2013%20Marin%20counts%20update.pdf

As you can see from the Averages – there is no increase worth mentioning. But more than this is the unconvincing data from the

three new Bike Paths where $28 Million of Taxpayer’s money was wasted.

Was there an attempt to exclude the tourists renting bikes and traveling in Sausalito, Tiburon, Mill Valley? These bikes are clearly marked as rental.
