Something wonderful happened today. We officially set in motion the road to free access to the TRIP Database. For various contractual reasons free access won’t start until 1st September 2006. However, we’re hoping to publish a ‘beta’ version of the free site ASAP (probably 3-4 months). The free version will actually be an enhancement on the current version – the next step in the evolution of the site. But, as mentioned, contractually we’re not able to push anything ‘official’ out until September.
