Transit Times In NYC, Visualised

Transit Times In NYC, Visualised


As cities grow and populations expand, people move further and further away from the centre. That’s definitely happened in New York — and this visualisation shows how the shift to more distant neighbourhoods affects travel time.

The interactive maps lets you click on a location and then gives a colour-coded insight into transit times across the entire city. It’s a little like Trulia’s Google Maps mashup — in fact it almost certainly shares some data sources with it — though it collapses data down instead of giving results by transport type. And it looks prettier too. [WNYC via Flowing Data]
