Dear Transport Department,
I am a student at the University of Hong Kong conducting research on transportation in Hong Kong. While exploring available transport data sources, I came across the Transport Characteristics Survey (TCS) and its associated database. I am particularly interested in accessing the TCS 2011 Database for my research purposes.
I kindly request information on the possibility of obtaining access to the TCS 2011 Database. As an aspiring researcher, having access to this dataset would greatly contribute to the depth and quality of my study on transportation in Hong Kong.
Additionally, I would like to inquire about the availability of the TCS 2022 Database.
