Abstract

The Transport Data Centre (TDC) within the New South Wales Ministry of Transport is the premier source of transport data for NSW. TDC’s role is to assist those involved in transport and land use planning to make informed decisions by collecting, analysing, processing, and providing reliable and up-to-date information on current and future travel patterns and employment and population trends. This information is used by Government and private sector clients for the evaluation of all major transport infrastructure developments, and strategic and service planning in NSW.
