Travel analysis methodology June 2018
The baseline journey time analysis estimates current journey times for residents of the CCG areas. It considers:
- Four time periods: AM peak, PM peak, Interpeak, Off-peak
- Three modes: car, blue light ambulance, public transport
- Outputs: maps for each time period and mode; summary tables showing population within travel time bands; all combinations of journeys between a home neighbourhood area and any hospital in scope have been modelled
Modelling software was used to estimate the travel time between origins (the centre of each home neighbourhood*) and destinations (nine hospital locations).
The model created a travel time for each possible origin and destination pair (for all transport modes, in all time periods).
