Against the background of several transport, environmental and health master plans the government of the State of Tyrol aimed at the increase of the share of cyclist from 7% to 14% in 2020. GHG emissions and air pollutions shall be reduced, the transport system shall be improved (leading to a reduction of congestion, improvement of accessibility etc.). In particular, cycle infrastructure needs to be improved in order to provide an attractive supply for cycling. A network of (permanent) count stations and an appropriate data analysis concept are necessary to model cycle traffic flows, to analyse temporal changes and to evaluate the success of transport measures. Both, data collection and data analysis form the basis for determining the effectiveness of improvement of the cycling infrastructure. Aim of the project is to identify current count stations in the State of Tyrol and to develop a concept for extending the count station network considering location, technical performance as well as data analysis.

The LAST MILE project concept, developed in the first half-year 2015, is based on the capitalization processes of foregoing sustainable mobility projects, in articular the two projects Access2Mountain and Transdanube, led by the Environment Agency Austria, both dealing with sustainable mobility in tourism. More than its forerunners, the LAST MILE project sets a concrete focus on the problematic accessibility of the last link of the travel chain from origin to destination (the so called "last mile") and collects and analyses solutions to cover this bottleneck with sustainable modes of transport. Not only shall the environmental benefit be considered, but also the resource- and cost-efficiency in the long run. Regions shall profit from an interregional focused experience exchange on flexible and demand-responsive mobility solutions and last but not least transfer best practice but also innovative approaches to their regional policies.
