Tool Inventory

Welcome to the CIVITAS Urban Mobility Tool Inventory

The CIVITAS Tool Inventory is an online database of over 200 tools and methods that helps local authorities make better informed decisions about which planning tools to apply in their given local context.

It features a broad range of tools and methods – including guidelines, software, manuals, mobile apps, games, and planning approaches – that are useful for all steps of the urban mobility planning process, from scenario building and measure selection to implementation and evaluation. To find the tool most relevant to your needs, you can filter the selection in several ways:

If you select filters from different categories, such as “German” from Language and Software from "Tool Type", then only tools matching both those filters are displayed. You can also use the general search bar to look for tools by name.
