Our Search API clients can rank and sort thousands of locations by travel time for their users. For example, when compared to traditional ‘as the crow flies’ radius search, the TravelTime Search API shows you points of interest that are actually reachable within a 45 minute travel time using various modes of transport. You can check how one of the biggest UK’s recruitment company is using it to return better recruitment results here.
