We found the parameters of the velocity ellipsoid in the solar neighbourhood, the Galactocentric solar velocity, and the circular velocity at the solar radius. In order to take into account biasing and irregularities of the velocity field, we extrapolated to zero heliocentric distance. For the Galactocentric solar velocity, we also extrapolated to zero angular momentum. As for the circular velocity, extrapolation to zero eccentricity was used.
