How far can you get in 30-minutes by public transit?

Create a travel time polygon

Using the TravelTime platform and some simple code, researchers can map how far people can travel in 30 minutes by public transportation from a specific address. This is more realistic than radius circles because these don't take into account roads, bus routes, etc. TravelTime platform includes several countries, including US coasts.
