Just an update...We are still finalizing the data. I don’t have a release date yet, but getting closer.

Will the bicycle count report be released this week?

Rob's comment:

Yes, apparently data can sometimes be hard to "finalize," even if you've already had six months to do it. If, as we suspect, the numbers are down from last year, the MTA's problem is about how to present/spin the report, not with the numbers themselves. That's what "finalizing" means in this context.

they will most definitely spin the report, or even fudge the numbers to match their message, even if the numbers are truly up slightly
