Educational subscription options

The Conveyal team is glad to collaborate with researchers and offer subscriptions for educational purposes. Please email if any of these options would fit your needs:

  • For instructional use (e.g. classes not funded by external sponsors), Conveyal covers student account creation, computation costs, and access to one geographic region and baseline transit network, assuming a local contact handles basic support requests and serves as the point of contact with the Conveyal team. We can also offer an in-depth training for instructors and the local support contact.
  • For research funded by external sponsors, contact us about reduced-cost subscription options.
  • For individual student users working on unfunded thesis/capstone projects, we suggest downloading and running our open-source software locally, to facilitate maximum customization. We also offer a limited number of free subscriptions to our cloud-hosted platform each semester. To request such a subscription, students should email with a link to GTFS feed(s) representing their baseline transit network, and an overview of the scenarios they intend to test. Contingent on subscription availability, Conveyal will provide a user account, the ability to create any number of modifications to that transit network using Conveyal's built-in scenario editor, and up to ten region-wide accessibility analyses. Follow-up support for these users is available through community channels (e.g. Conveyal's documentation and GitHub) but not directly from the Conveyal team.

We’re eager to hear about additional cutting-edge applications, so we appreciate it when academic users send us a copy of any thesis, report, or paper produced using our software. We also request that such deliverables include acknowledgement with a link to and cite any of our publications that may be relevant.
