TRACC Travel Time Analysis

The Leading Multi-Modal Travel Time Analysis Tool


Our TRACC software is the market leader in public transport analysis. TRACC creates accurate multi-modal journey time calculations, including walking, cycling, public transport and car helping people calculate access and create detailed what-if scenarios.

How TRACC works

Download Datasets

Create journey times from many origins to many destinations at local, regional or national scale. TRACC has industry compatibility, to ensure inclusion for data you have.

Edit/Customise Data

Upload transport networks such as buses, trains, walking or cycling routes into the application. Start making changes to timetables, routes and roads to see how these changes impact access across the network.

Publish Maps

Export results visually or using detailed reports to show your analysis to internal and external stakeholders.

Features in TRACC


Championed by Transport for London and now utilised all over the world, PTALs combine walk times from a chosen point to the network (stations and bus stops, for example) together with service frequency data at these locations to give an access score to highlight areas poorly served by scheduled transport services.

O/D Matching

The ability to run calculations for specific OD pairs. When calculations run into the billions, this allows data to be cherry picked to ensure TRACC runs quickly and does not calculate what you don’t need.

Local Accessibility

Want to know how far away a development is from a bus stop, TRACC’s powerful local accessibility calculation allows a user to show distance away from a stop at a specific frequency to help users plan where development should be targeted.

Stop Frequency Analysis

TRACC allows a user to see where there are high frequency of services in specific corridors, this allows users to make informed decisions about new routes.


Analyse with Authoritative Data

TRACC can load a variety of datasets from open source data that is freely available, data held internally by your organisation to detailed authoritative datasets from the world's biggest mapping suppliers.

This data can add value by showing demographical information of population-based from national censuses to more detailed studies. TRACC can also utilise detailed speed datasets derived from up-to-date vehicle movements to give accurate bus routing and driving analysis.


Images are really powerful at showing travel time and distance, TRACC allows detailed and accurate isochrones/contours to be created showing customised time bands and colours. These can then be exported out to third party software if required.


When looking at more detailed analysis around irregular points, then a thematic map can be individually styled and exported to third party software showing users different frequency levels of services at bus stops, closest destination analysis or individual routes to name a few.


Different Output Options

While allowing detailed visuals, TRAC has a powerful reporting engine that can create various unique reports: -

  • Large matrices showing every origin to destination
  • Enhanced outputs showing time spent on each mode, interchanges, and dwell time
  • Service analysis showing which routes are used most for access
  • Frequency reports showing where high-frequency stops are on the network
  • Demographic data to show how many people have access
  • OD Path files show the exact routes used to create personal journey plans
  • PTAL reports showing how the scores are calculated

These files can all be loaded in common office formats allowing users to have a deeper dive into different accessibility metrics..

Strategy Officer, Staffordshire County Council

Analyzing accessibility in small geographies such as census blocks reveals hotspots with very poor accessibility that will not show up when bigger geographies are used. TRACC helped us estimate travel times and accessibility between tens of thousands of census blocks within a reasonable time-frame, a task no other software I was familiar with was able to handle.
