This dashboard was developed as part of the research project 'Inclusive and Healthy Mobility: Understanding Trends in Concessionary Travel in the West Midlands', conducted at University College London in partnership with Transport for West Midlands. Click here to find more information about the project.
The trends are based on anonymous bus and tram boardings recorded on smart cards of passengers registered under the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (ENCTS) in the West Midlands Combined Authority between 2009 and 2016.
Monthly origin-destination flows of ENCTS passengers between LSOAs between January 2014 and AugustS 2016.
The data record the frequency of journeys between LSOAs where it was possible to determine both journeys' origins and destinations. These counts do not represent all journeys and are limited to a specific service provider.
Estimates of travel time to selected services based on bus timetables and walking trips along the ITN road network (2010-2016).
Travel time is the mean minimum time to reach the selected service across a 24-hour period calculated at 30 minute intervals.
