The PTV Access Data Platform

The data provided via the APIs comes from automatically generated transport models and numerous other public and commercial data sources. With the help of intelligent algorithms, we merge and refine all this information to create valuable and exclusive data sets. This information is automatically transferred to your system via interfaces, where it is available to you for analysis and evaluation.

Use Cases

Real estate portals: convincing customers with location ratings

Location plays a key role in the search for a property. How well connected is it to public transport? Are there schools, restaurants or pharmacies nearby? How far is it to the nearest supermarket?

By integrating our data interface, you can provide this and other information for each listing on your website. Your customers receive more information and find suitable offers more quickly. And you can set yourself apart from your competitors with a better offer.

Transport planning: Analyzing accessibility

Analyze mobility in your city with PTV Access and discover the potential of different modes of transport. Accessibility analyses are an important tool for determining the efficiency of a transportation system. With the accessibility index from PTV Access, you can uncover gaps in mobility supply and quickly identify areas with potential for improvement. 

The index takes into account the traffic volume of different types of transport at different times and indicates how easily a destination can be reached in a certain time. The results of the analysis can then be used in the number-based optimization of mobility concepts.

To the showcase

Retail & advertising: Maximize performance

Finding the perfect location for the new supermarket branch, billboard or petrol station: PTV provides you with helpful information. Traffic volumes in the vicinity of a location can be included in the estimation of customer potential and thus improve decision-making.

Discover additional sales potential by taking into account not only local customers, but also through traffic. In addition to the volume of traffic, you can also take into account the traffic location and connections.

Our APIs

Accessibility Score API

The PTV Accessibility Score API provides accessibility indices for various means of transport (walking, cycling, public transport, car) for an address. The index ranges from 0 (poor) to 100 (very good) and describes how easily a destination can be reached within a certain time. The times are calculated on the basis of a geographical multimodal database that includes the current road network as well as the available, current public transport route and timetable data and information on the cycling infrastructure. In addition to the accessibility index, the API also provides all points of interest (e.g. schools, supermarkets, train stations, pharmacies) that are included in the index calculation.

Traffic Volume API

The PTV Traffic Volume API provides the average traffic volumes for an address for different time ranges (day types, hourly values) of the surrounding roads. The values are calculated using a traffic demand model and calibrated with the help of public road counts.
