iTRACE Southwest England
Local Authorities (LAs) and the Highways Agency (HA) in the South
West strongly support the development of travel plans as a key tool for promoting
sustainable travel. As part of our push for good quality travel planning, a consortium
of six LA's shown on the right and the HA has adopted iTrace with the assistance
of funding from the South West Council.
iTrace provides a centralised software suite designed to monitor and report on the
performance of Workplace and School Travel Plans, offering quicker, easier Travel
Planning, Assessment, Auditing and Forecasting. Local Authorities can now share
Travel Plan data.
Each LA offers advice and support to help those designing and implementing
travel plans. With the assistance of LA's, companies can use iTrace to assist with
their Travel Plans. Please click on the appropriate LA logo on the right for further
