The TRICS® Bureau Service is provided to enable the purchase of specific data when required by non-member organisations.
An organisation wishing to use the TRICS® Bureau Service can contact the TRICS® team to outline their development scenario requirements using the Bureau Application link below. By indicating specific criteria for site inclusion, TRICS® can in effect undertake a trip rate calculation analysis on the organisation’s behalf. The full TRICS® selection and calculation results outputs are then supplied at a cost, outlined below.
Some things for an organisation to consider when looking to use the TRICS® Bureau Service include the following.
Please note all TRICS® Bureau Service work undertaken by the TRICS® team will always follow TRICS® Good Practice guidance, to ensure all reports produced are in line with our guidance both in terms of all processes undertaken and all selections made. Therefore, we are unable to fulfill any TRICS® Bureau Service requests that contravene any elements of our guidance on good practice.
When using the TRICS® Bureau Service, the following will be provided:
Most TRICS® Bureau Service requests can be fulfilled within a few working days, dependent on how quickly a final survey sample for the calculations can be agreed. However, it must be noted, first time users of the TRICS® Bureau Service will be required to pay for the data up front before receiving it.
All invoices for TRICS® Bureau Service work is sent out electronically and the following must be supplied:
Costs are per report and each report can contain only one trip rates calculation. If more than one trip rates calculation is required, more than one report will be required.
TRICS® Bureau Service membership is available for a 12 month period. Purchasing an annual TRICS® Bureau Service membership significantly reduces the costs of each trip rates calculation report, as shown in the table below.
The current fees for use of the TRICS® Bureau Service are shown below, with VAT to be added to all prices.
We operate a paperless invoicing system to help the environment and reduce our carbon footprint. If you require paper copies of invoices to be sent to you via Royal Mail you will be charged an additional “Postage and Handling” fee.
