Traffic Count Stations


Provide Feedback

Point features representing the traffic count stations on the regional road system with traffic counts from 1996 to 2017 for the Region of Peel.

Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) is the total volume of vehicles on a roadway for a 24-hour period. AADT’s are calculated from raw data which is collected by an Automated Traffic Recorder (ATR). ATR data is collected with pneumatic road tubes that are attached to the road and record traffic with a counting device that is attached to the road tubes. These tubes are installed on the road for at least one day but can be down for up to seven consecutive days.

For north/south roads (ex: Dixie Road), columns with NE show northbound traffic and columns named SW show southbound traffic. For east/west roads (ex: Bovaird Drive), columns named NE show eastbound traffic and columns named SW show westbound traffic.

Years with a 0 or no value as their count reflect that no count was taken for that year.
