The Trips Database Bureau 

Transport trip and parking rates are an important aspect of land development within New Zealand and Australia.

Engineers and planners use trip and parking data to:

  • Predict how may people may visit a development.
  • Calculate the number of car parking spaces required.
  • Calculate the proportion of people using different transport modes.
  • Quantify the scale of effect a development may have.
  • Quantify the size of a development based on available transport capacity.

It is important that the information used to calculate these items is reliable and relates to specific New Zealand and Australian land uses. The Trips Database Bureau (TDB) has established a database that collects and maintains reliable trip and parking demand data.

If you work in an engineering or planning consultancy, with a local or regional council, or you have an involvement in transport surveys you should consider joining TDB.
