The system that challenges and validates assumptions about the transport impacts of new developments.

It is the UK and Ireland’s national system of trip generation analysis, containing over 7150 directional transport surveys at over 110 types of development. TRICS® was founded and is owned by 6 County Councils in the south of England, collectively the TRICS® Consortium. However, its annual collection programme covers the whole of the UK and Ireland, across 17 defined regions.


This is reflected in the national spread of member organisations across each of these regions, which we know as the TRICS® Community.

This is the website for that community, as well as being a resource for anyone interested in the field of trip generation analysis. Please have a look around – we look forward to receiving your feedback.

On behalf of TRICS® Consortium Ltd, I would like to welcome you to the home of the TRICS® Community.

TRICS® is the national system of trip generation analysis for the UK and Ireland, an essential method of measuring the likely transport generated by new developments. I am pleased to be part of the management group that delivers this integral and established feature of the transport planning and development management process.

2015 sees a milestone in the TRICS® journey. On 1st January 2015 the project was for the first time run by its own company. The creation of this new company will enable the current system to be promoted in foreign countries and will also enable the team to develop some new and exciting products to serve the Transportation Industry. Both these areas of work will enable increased development of our current system and help to improve and expand our data collection programme; all to the benefit of our current members and the wider transport planning industry.

From the outset in 1989, we determined that the users should have an ongoing and direct input into how the project was to be developed, and this unique working relationship with the TRICS® Community has culminated in many upgrades and re-writes over the years, with major milestones being the development of a version of TRICS® for Windows, the introduction of the live system on the web, and, more recently, the major upgrade of the user interface that is TRICS® 7.

User training & demonstrations

The sessions consist of a full system demonstration, in which all parts of the system are covered. This lasts approximately one hour, and is then followed by an optional "hands-on" session where attendees can practice using the latest version of the TRICS® software with specially-designed "test sheets". This is designed to introduce new users to the system.

Each demonstration/training session costs £500 + VAT, and is free of charge to TRICS® member universities. Organisations hosting sessions are asked to provide a computer and projector for the demonstration part of the session, and also to provide the computer facilities for the training part of the session. Non-member organisations will be provided with temporary access to the TRICS® system for the purposes of the session.

One month free trial

A free trial of TRICS® will allow you to view the system's features and the ever-expanding database of transport surveys which TRICS® offers. It is ideal for those interested in purchasing a software licence, allowing them to evaluate the system in full before committing to membership. The only restriction during the trial period is that you cannot use TRICS® for commercial purposes, with the trial being for evaluation purposes only. So why not try the system out before you become a member?

Many new members of the TRICS® Community originally took up this offer, which provides trialists with full use of the latest version of the system, along with unlimited user support. The TRICS® Team can set up your free trial today, it's quick and it's easy - contact us to request your free trial
