Dear Friend of the TRB Standing Committee on Urban Transportation Data & Information
Thank you for your participation as a Friend of our committee. Management of a
committee's Friends list will now be a function performed by chairs through TRB's
new, self service portal called "MyTRB." The goal of MyTRB is to centralize the
functionalities that TRB volunteers and Friends need to carry out their roles within TRB.
Therefore, if you would like to continue to participate as a Friend of ABJ30, please read
and follow the instructions included in this note.
MyTRB Help Desk
To help users and to identify ways to enhance the new system, TRB has opened a MyTRB help
desk. The help desk can be reached by phone at 202-334-1738 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
ET Monday to Friday. The help desk can also be reached at
MyTRB@nas.edu<mailto:MyTRB@nas.edu>. If at any time you run into difficulty with
the system, please contact the MyTRB helpdesk.
To Continue to Be a Friend of the Committee
There are two steps that you must take in order to ensure that you continue to be a Friend
of the committee.
1) MyTRB New User Signup
TRB imported information from its old volunteer database into MyTRB. Therefore, there is
the potential that a profile for you may already be in the MyTRB system.
Go to https://www.MyTRB.org
and follow the "New Users Signup" process.
If a profile already exists for you in the system, you will receive an email that will
allow you to create your password. If no profile exists in MyTRB that matches the email
you have provided, you will be prompted to create a profile.
To help avoid confusion, please use your official e-mail address since benefits and access
to certain features is keyed, in part, off your email.
If you believe the profile TRB has for you on file may be linked to an old e-mail address
that you no longer have access to, please contact the MyTRB help desk with both the old
and new e-mail addresses. Wait for a response from the help desk before attempting to
login for the first time.
Once in MyTRB, please take a moment to ensure that your profile is up-to-date. Navigation
within MyTRB is controlled by the links that appear in the gray bar below the burgundy TRB
header on the website. To view your existing profile, hover over "My Account"
and then click on "Edit Profile."
2) Linking Yourself as a Friend of a Committee
After logging in to MyTRB, access to the "Become a Friend of a Committee" page
is available under the "Committee" dropdown. Locate the name of the committee
you would like to become a Friend of and click "submit."
You may "Friend" as many committees as you like.
TRB has created a short video demonstrating this process that is available at
For subsequent logins, please bookmark https://www.MyTRB.org
. A link to MyTRB will be
made from TRB's main website in subsequent weeks.
