TRACE toolkit presents practical recommendations and guidelines to using the approach developed by TRACE, which aims to improve urban mobility planning by tracking walking and cycling movements in cities. TRACE innovation consists of introducing a tracking element in local mobility campaigns and planning. Tracking applications have been used to improve the effectiveness of behaviour change campaigns and to collect tracking data useful for urban planning.

This Toolkit explains how local authorities can benefit from tracking movements in their city, and how the derived data provide information for a better identification of priorities both on the infrastructure and communication side. The toolkit can be used by decision makers, urban planners and practitioners in the fields of urban and transport planning who are interested in introducing policies and measures that promote a shift towards more sustainable and healthy modes of transport. Local stakeholders, citizens and advocacy groups, and ICT developers and transport consultancies and researchers, are also addressed in this document.
