ArcGIS Pro users can access rich transport data, including public transport, through the TravelTime ArcGIS Pro add-in
LONDON, UK, Wednesday 3 November 2021 — Today TravelTime announced the launch of its ArcGIS Pro add-in on the ArcGIS Marketplace. Users can:
- Draw isochrone catchment areas using public transport and multi-modal transport modes such as driving and train combined. It also includes driving, cycling and walking.
- Create a travel time matrix by calculating thousands of travel times from many origins to many destinations.
- Get turn-by-turn A to B routing information for single-mode and multi-mode journeys.
- Predict future travel time accessibility by integrating future transport networks into their analysis.
The add-in is used by the UK’s National Health Service and commercial property companies such as Knight Frank and JLL for location-based analysis. It helps users select which sites are best for new retail, healthcare, and office locations. By putting the power of mobility data behind every location-based decision they make, these companies can make smarter development decisions.
Real estate company Knight Frank is a user of the plugin. Daniel Cronin, Associate, Geospatial Enterprise, Knight Frank, commented:
“The TravelTime ArcGIS Pro plug-in enables us to get up-and-running with the full suite of TravelTime analysis capabilities, instead of spending days developing, testing and maintaining our own API integrations. Analysing site accessibility using public transport, driving, walking and cycling data helps us to provide the most precise location intelligence to our clients.”
“Esri customers can now benefit from the power of TravelTime’s analysis in their usual workflows, integrating it with maps, apps and dashboards,” said Heather Fletcher, Head of Practice Partners, Alliances and Content, Esri UK. “TravelTime are public transport experts. Having rapid access to such comprehensive public transport travel times will greatly enrich the decision-making process for Esri users.”
“Launching our add-in within the ArcGIS Marketplace gives Esri customers access to rich public transport datasets instantly without any custom code required. This helps ArcGIS users make smarter location-based decisions in urban areas because they can support their standard driving network analysis with public transport insights. This is critical for developing smarter, more sustainable cities,” said Charlie Davies, CEO and Co-Founder of TravelTime.

TravelTime is an API and set of plugins that let users search location data using minutes rather than miles. Many businesses use a miles radius to power apps or make decisions based on location, but this assumes that people can travel as the crow flies. TravelTime calculates all possible A to B routes around an origin to make a catchment area that is specific for the user’s travel preferences. It powers travel time searching on Rightmove, Zoopla, TotalJobs, Jobsite and other web searches. It also powers location analytics for the NHS, CBRE, JLL and Knight Frank.
