Function to calculate the shortest travel times from a stop (give by from_stop_name) to all other stops of a feed. filtered_stop_times needs to be created before with filter_stop_times.

travel_times(filtered_stop_times, from_stop_name,
  departure_time_range = 3600, max_transfers = NULL,
  max_departure_time = NULL)

Arguments

filtered_stop_times

stop_times data.table (with transfers and stops tables as attributes) created with filter_stop_times where the deparuture time has been set.

from_stop_name

stop name from which travel times should be calculated. A vector with multiple names is accepted.

departure_time_range

All departures within this range in seconds after the first departure of filtered_stop_times are considered for journeys.

max_transfers

The maximimum number of transfers

max_departure_time

Either set this parameter or departure_time_range. Only departures before max_departure_time are used. Accepts "HH:MM:SS" or seconds as numerical value.

Value

A table with travel times to all stops reachable from from_stop_name and their corresponding journey departure and arrival times.

Details

This function allows easier access to raptor by using stop names instead of ids and returning shortest travel times by default.

Examples

nyc_path <- system.file("extdata", "google_transit_nyc_subway.zip", package = "tidytransit") nyc <- read_gtfs(nyc_path, local=TRUE) # Use journeys departing after 7 AM with arrival time before 9 AM on 26th June stop_times <- filter_stop_times(nyc, "2018-06-26", 7*3600, 9*3600) tts <- travel_times(stop_times, "34 St - Herald Sq") tts <- tts %>% filter(travel_time <= 3600) # travel time to Queensboro Plaza is 810 seconds, 13:30 minutes tts %>% filter(stop_name == "Queensboro Plaza") %>% dplyr::pull(travel_time) %>% hms::hms()
#> 00:13:30
# plot a simple map showing travel times to all reachable stops # this can be expanded to isochron maps library(ggplot2) ggplot(tts) + geom_point(aes(x=stop_lon, y=stop_lat, color = travel_time))
