Journey time statistics

Information on journey time statistics.

Journey time statistics provide estimates of journey times down to a small area geographical scale for the whole of England. It consists of two types of current releases.

The access to services releases 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 are an updated version of the earlier accessibility statistics collection published for 2007 through to 2013.

Connectivity statistics are an experimental development which provide estimates for longer journeys to access fewer, more strategically significant destinations (in the first instance, transport hubs). It is planned that future developments of these statistics will also adopt the new methods used for access to services statistics.

Accessibility statistics were an earlier version of the access to services statistics, produced for 2007 to 2013. They are very similar in concept but the results are not directly comparable with the new collection for 2014 onwards.

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.
