NISTO Evaluation Toolkit User Guide

The NISTO toolkit has been designed for transport planners, local and regional authorities, researchers and non-governmental organisations who want to appraise different options to solve a mobility-related problem in the urban or regional context.

It is particularly suited for the early assessment of alternatives when detailed data is not yet available about the impacts of the interventions. The NISTO evaluation toolkit can be used to evaluate small-scale mobility projects for sustainability and stakeholder preferences and monitor policy targets.
