Pedestrian Counts

Real Time Pedestrian Counts

Heart of the City's real time pedestrian counts are revolutionising our knowledge of how people are using our City Centre streets.

The system captures real time information on the number of people moving past the 19 locations at any one time, and operates on a 24/7 basis.

Our interactive map below allows you to see pedestrian counts at specific locations on selected dates or date periods along with comparison data. You will be able to see what happens to pedestrian activity over different days, and when there are major events and activities occurring within the vicinity of each location.

We produce quarterly reports that show high level results that can be used to compare pedestrian counts between quarters and years. 

If you have any specific pedestrian count requests for the areas where counters are currently operational, please contact us at
