The blobs on the maps below show how much of Anchorage you can access within 15 minutes (in white), 30 minutes (in blue), 45 minutes (in green) or 60 minutes(in pink) of travel time. These blobs are called “isochrones.” The isochrones are centered around a cartoon person, which show where that person could go in the city, in a fixed amount of time. The travel times take into account the time spent walking to transit, waiting for the bus, riding, transferring, and walking to one’s final destination.
You can use these maps to think about access in the reverse, as well. For a worksite or store at the selected point, the blobs show who could readily get there: the employees it can attract and the customers who can shop there.
Keep in mind that it isn’t simply the geographic area of these isochrones, but the number of people they contain, that speak to a Concept’s ridership potential.
