This project became Mapumental. Please visit that site for details of our travel-time maps services.
The work was funded and supported by the Department for Transport.
You may remember that back in 2006 mySociety published some maps showing how long it took to commute places via public transport.
We’ve just made some more which have some lovely new features we reckon you’ll probably like a lot.
If you’d like to see more maps like this in your area, please ask your local transport authority to get in touch with us, or nudge these people 🙂
PS As always, Francis Irving remains a genius.
Again, excellent work.
Also, I just saw that Randall Munroe, author of the xkcd.com comic mentioned the time travel maps at the start of his recent Google Talk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJOS0sV2a24
I think one nice temporary solution could be to create maps centered on where people work, for example the useful one for me would be the Liverpool Street or Bank.
