TRACE assessed the potential of movement tracking services to better plan and promote walking and cycling in cities, and developed tracking tools to drive the uptake of walking and cycling measures.

About the project

TRACE looked at measures to promote cycling and walking to the workplace and school, for shopping purposes, and simply for leisure. More specifically, TRACE assessed the potential of ICT-based tracking services to optimise the planning and implementation of such measures and enhance their attractiveness and potential impact.

TRACE tested its tools in eight pilot sites: Agueda (Portugal), Belgrade (Serbia), Breda (The Netherlands), Esch (Luxembourg), Flanders (Belgium), Plovdiv (Bulgaria), and Southend-on-Sea (United Kingdom). Their impact, the associated user benefits, and success factors were analysed in preparation of commercial exploitation.

The end results were common, flexible and open access tools that can be developed into tracking service products tailored to the needs of specific measures.
