Each site within the TRICS® database contains comprehensive information on its location and surroundings, its facilities and operations, its on-site and off-site parking availability, and an hourly directional transport count covering a variety of vehicle types and modes.
This section contains information on the location of a site, its local environment and surroundings, and levels of local public transport provision. A site falls within a main and sub location type, with its address, postcode and latitude/longitude displayed to give its exact location. Information on population ranges is also available, as are sub-sections on public transport accessibility and design features of the site that encourage non-car modes of transport. Many sites are accompanied by a digital photograph.
This section describes the nature, facilities, and operations of the site itself, and varies by development type. Where applicable, the size of the site, its operating hours, information on employees and a variety of other development features are specified. For residential sites, information on dwelling and ownership types is given, and for other types of development a number of different site-specific data items are displayed.
This section displays information on both on-site and off-site parking availability. For on-site parking, the total number of parking spaces at the site are broken down into different categories, and for off-site parking information is given on local availability, restrictions, and fees.
Survey day details
This section is where the actual count data, by mode type, is displayed. All TRICS counts are displayed as arrivals, departures and totals by time period, with an analysis of modal split available for multi-modal surveys. Information on the day and date of the survey is also provided, along with other valuable information such as weather conditions and car parking accumulation throughout the survey duration.
Travel Plan details
This section is available for sites that have been surveyed as part of the Standardised Assessment Methodology (SAM) process. Comprehensive information on travel plan targets and elements are displayed across a number of sub-screens (for example "Financial Incentives", "Public Transport", "Cycling Measures", etc), providing information (where available) on implementation dates and costs.
