The TRACE Toolkit is structured as follows:
• Section 1 introduces the TRACE project and the TRACE tracking apps and tools, developed during the project and tested in eight pilot sites.
• Section 2 presents the potential benefits of tracking travel movements, informs about the functions of tracking data on cycling and walking in the urban planning and decision-making process, considers how data should be translated into meaningful information and reviews gaps in data relevant for transport planning for traditional data collection methods.
• Section 3 goes through all the concrete steps to design, prepare and implement a tracking mobility campaign, explains how to evaluate it, and provides some firsthand, practical tips deriving from the real implementation of the TRACE campaigns.
• Section 4 illustrates the innovative features of TAToo, which can be used by local planners and decision makers to support better informed planning and decisionmaking processes based on the analysis of mobility tracking data, previously collected during the tracking campaigns.
• Section 5 describes the actual 17 campaigns of the eight TRACE pilot sites: Agueda (PT), Belgrade (RS), Bologna (IT), Breda (NL), Hasselt (BE), Luxembourg (LU), Plovdiv (BG) and Southend on Sea Borough (UK).
• Section 6 provides tailored recommendations to different types of stakeholders.
• The Annex presents the business models for the commercial exploitation of the TRACE tools.
