RidePod® BT

Portable Bicycle & Active Transport Counter

The world’s only tube counter designed to detect individual axles and accurately classify them as different bicycle types. The RidePod® BT is easy to install, reliable and accurately provides extremely detailed information on active mobility.


Accurate, practical and meaningful

Unlike competitor products, the RidePod® BT uses thin-walled pneumatic tubes as sensors that can detect non-magnetic vehicles (such as carbon fibre bikes) and e-scooters/bicycles travelling in tight groups.

The system collects axle data from bike lanes and shared paths and is then analysed by our MTE software, running the axle information through optimised algorithms. This provides extremely accurate and reliable data, making the RidePod BT the world’s most trusted active mobility counter.

RidePod® BT + FieldPod®

Add Remote Access to Your Counter

The RidePod® BT is the only tube-based vehicle counter that supports remote connection via an additional piece of hardware, the MetroCount Remote Access Module. Your counter can be upgraded at any time to include FieldPod® functionalities.
