The Conveyal team collaborates with researchers and offers subscriptions for educational purposes. Please email email@example.com if any of these options fits 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. This subscription option assumes 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.
We’re eager to hear about additional cutting-edge applications, so we appreciate it when researchers 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 conveyal.com and cite our publications, when relevant and appropriate.
The Conveyal team participates actively in the transportation research community, including through peer-reviewed publications:
Conway and Stewart (2019): Getting Charlie off the MTA: a multiobjective optimization method to account for cost constraints in public transit accessibility metrics, in International Journal of GIS (open preprint)
Conway, Byrd, and van Eggermond (2018): Accounting for uncertainty and variation in accessibility metrics for public transport sketch planning, in Journal of Transport and Land Use
Conway, Byrd, and van der Linden (2017): Evidence-Based Transit and Land Use Sketch Planning Using Interactive Accessibility Methods on Combined Schedule and Headway-Based Networks, in Transportation Research Record (open preprint)
Other publications and open-source community use
Academic researchers leverage Conveyal's cutting-edge methods and open-source software (including via the independent r5r wrapper library) for a wide range of innovative research. Recent examples include:
