Modes of transport

MinuteMapr can analyse data by most modes of transport. These include walking, driving, train, underground, tram, cycling and bus. In fact, pretty much anything that runs on rails, roads, footpaths or cycle tracks.

It includes most public transport timetables and scheduled roadworks and engineering works.

Several transport modes can be combined:

  • within a single search – so, ‘search by walking, cycling and public transport, simultaneously’.
  • within a single journey – so, ‘walk to the station, catch the train, use the underground, & walk to destination’.

Available modes of transport using MinuteMapr

MinuteMapr can deliver location-based analysis by travel time, using most modes of transport. Walking, driving and cycling are covered as well as public transport modes such as train, underground, tram and bus. The software uses information from the majority of public transport timetables and covers scheduled roadworks and engineering works.

Multi-mode transport options

Oleta Adams once sang “you can reach me by railway” but she also made herself reachable by airplane, caravan, and sailboat. Just like Oleta, we want to give as many options as possible.

Search all modes

If it doesn’t matter which mode of transport is used, MinuteMapr enables users to search all modes of transport simultaneously. For example “Show me all postcodes within 30 minutes by car, foot or public transport from the business’ location”

Combine transport modes

It’s possible to combine modes of transport. MinuteMapr can assess if it’s quicker to combine rail and road, or use one mode from A to B.  For example “Can I target an additional set of customers by taking advantage of the park and ride schemes?”. 

 

Which modes of transport should I choose?

All of our transport modes are available over the software – and it’s the same price if you want to use all of them or just the one.

Waiting times

Waiting times are calculated differently depending on how you choose to display time of day on the website. When users select a specific time of day, they see a wait time that’s reflective of real public transport data. When the time of day is not specified, the average wait time for that mode of public transport is given.
