Journey time statistics

Statistics and data of journey times to important services, covering food stores, education, health care, town centres and employment centres.

Journey Time Statistics provide estimates of journey times down to a small area geographical scale for the whole of England. The access to services analyses within the Journey Time Statistics series provide estimates of journey times to important services (covering food stores, education, health care, town centres and employment centres) for the populations who use them, for 2014 onwards. They replace the earlier accessibility statistics collection published for 2007 through to 2013, which used a similar but different method and are not comparable with the new series.

The connectivity analyses within the Journey Time Statistics series are an experimental development which provide estimates for longer journeys to access fewer, more strategically significant destinations (in the first instance, transport hubs). They replace the earlier connectivity statistics releases published in 2014 and 2015 using the older method.

Technical information

These statistics are derived from the analysis of spatial data on public transport timetables; road, cycle and footpath networks; population and service locations.

All of the statistics published are official statistics. The department’s view is that all statistics which are not designated as national statistics are robust and have been produced to a suitable standard.
