Voluntary Travel Behaviour Change programs aim to improve both community information and awareness about personal contributions to the negative effects produced by private car use. Indeed, providing individuals with feedback (travel time and costs, CO2 emitted, etc.), as well as information about existing alternatives to the car, has been shown to motivate people to reduce car use. This paper presents the architecture of a technology platform constructed for the purpose of automating phases and activities of a Voluntary Travel Behaviour Change program, with a view to extending it to the large scale, reducing the resource commitment and enhancing the efficacy of the implementation.
