Berlin's Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment provides day-to-day data on the Internet

Berlin counts its traffic. For cycling this has been done with special automatic counting points since 2015, in addition to manual counting. The current data may now be accessed online on the internet pages of the Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment.

First evaluations show the range of traffic use in the city. The values range from 1,000 cyclists to 16,500 cyclists per day at individual metering points. There are sections as at the Jannowitzbrücke, where the number of cyclists on individual days almost matches the number of motor vehicles.

The automatic bicycle counting stations are located here:

  •     Jannowitzbrücke (Mitte)
  •     Invalidenstraße (Mitte)
  •     Oberbaumbrücke (Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg)
  •     Schwedter Steg (Pankow)
  •     Prinzregentenstraße (Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf)
  •     Yorckstraße (Tempelhof-Schöneberg)
  •     Monumentenstraße (Tempelhof-Schöneberg)
  •     Alberichstraße (Marzahn-Hellersdorf)
  •     Paul-und-Paula-Uferweg (Lichtenberg)
  •     Markstraße (Reinickendorf)

By the end of 2016, the following bicycle metering points will go into service:

  •     Mariendorfer Damm (Tempelhof-Schöneberg)
  •     Maybachufer (Neukölln)
  •     Berliner Straße (Pankow)
  •     Frankfurter Allee (Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg)
  •     Klosterstraße (Spandau)
  •     Breitenbachplatz Steglitz-Zehlendorf
