The New Zealand Trips and Parking Database Bureau (NZTPDB) formed in 2002 and was expanded in 2008 to include both New Zealand and Australian members when it adopted it’s present name, the Trips Database Bureau (TDB). It became an Incorporated Society in 2004.

The main purpose of the Bureau is to maintain and share a database of parking and trip surveys, for assistance in the wider assessment and planning of transportation matters.

Our members include local and regional councils, institutional organisations, consultancies and individual practitioners with an involvement in traffic and land use planning.

The Trips Database Bureau’s uses the TRICS platform for the New Zealand Trips Database.  This is the culmination of nearly two years of discussions and negotiation with the UK branch and includes the final migration of our Australian and New Zealand database onto the TRICS platform from what has been just an excel spreadsheet for many years.

In order to join, contact us at tripsdatabasebureau@gmail.com and we can send out a Membership Agreement.  TRICS will then send you a login and password to the database that will be accessed via the TRICS website: http://www.trics.org/Login.aspx

Subscriptions will still be maintained by the TDB.  Any problems please contact TDB on tripsdatabasebureau@gmail.com

TDB TRICS LAUNCH

The Trips Database Bureau’s AGM in September marked the official launch of the TRICS platform for the New Zealand Trips Database.  This is the culmination of nearly two years of discussions and negotiation with the UK branch and includes the final migration of our Australian and New Zealand database onto the TRICS platform from what has been just an excel spreadsheet for many years.  The TDB would like to thank Stuart Woods and Nick Rabbets for making this happen.  We hope that this will be a long and fruitful co-habitation.

In order to join we will shortly be sending out a Membership Agreement (see link below).  TRICS will then send you a login and password to the database that will be accessed via the TRICS website: http://www.trics.org/Login.aspx

Subscriptions will still be maintained by the TDB – so that doesn’t change – these will be sent out in November once we have your forms back.  Any problems please contact TDB on tripsdatabasebureau@gmail.com
