Volunteer to "Make the Trail Count"!

The Institute for Transportation Research and Education (ITRE) is conducting a study on the American Tobacco Trail segment of the East Coast Greenway. We need help collecting data before the bridge over Interstate 40 and its adjoining segments are completed and open. Come out on the trail and conduct user counts and intercept surveys with ITRE and ECGA staff. Learn about the research, meet other trail users, and help the research team collect meaningful data! Your efforts will help us paint a picture of how the trail is used and its economic and health effects.

Sign up here by filling out this online form. Sarah O'Brien, resources coordinator for the study, will develop a schedule for each day, and will follow up with you on more details as you are scheduled. If you have any questions about this project, please contact Sarah at 919-515-8703 or
