The Travel Times feature in Metroview utilizes activities uploaded to Strava and provides insight into approximate travel durations and mobility within your community. By analyzing this data, you can better understand where improvements can be made to enhance the flow of bicycles and pedestrians.
The bike ride category includes both regular and e-bike rides. The pedestrian activity category visualizes data from an aggregation of runs, walks and hikes, with the travel time based only on walking/hiking time (run activities are not included in the travel time calculation).
The Travel Times feature is available on the Map page of Metroview. Once selected, the map will load with options for filtering available on the left-hand side of the window. By choosing an Origin point, you can see how far a rider or pedestrian can usually travel from the selected point within the given time period. Conversely, select a Destination point to display an approximation of the time that riders or pedestrians take to reach the selected point.
Use the Max Travel Time slider to adjust the time frame visibility on the map. A time slider selection of 10 minutes will generate a map view displaying how far a rider or pedestrian could travel to/from within approximately 10 minutes. You can also adjust the Time period to see how particular movement patterns and ranges have changed over time.
Once a travel time range is generated, hover over any hexagon to view the fastest common route, along with the average travel time range for that route.
The data provided in the Travel Times tool is subject to the same privacy and aggregation standard as the other features in the Strava Metro platform. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us.
