Walking Tube Map
As part of our partnership with Transport for London, we took the data from their station-to-station walking tube map for the London Underground and turned it into an interactive feature for the Go Jauntly walking app.
Whilst the walking tube map is definitely very cool to look at, in practice, this station to station walking times map isn’t as useful as it could be.
The distance between stations is actually as the crow flies and last time we checked, no one is able to use their arms to flap their way to work just yet. Hehe!
So working with the fantastic brains behind the world’s best transport system in the world, Transport for London, we took their walking-related tube open data (specifically their station-to-station walking map data), as well as local London pollution information and integrated it with our walking app. The new Go Jauntly walking map allows you to chose which stations to walk between and plots a good route for you. We’ve also integrated Mapbox’s routing which shows the best footpath (not necessarily the quickest A-B) to help you become a pro active traveller. If you’re off somewhere else, just select a destination by tapping on the walking map and off you go. Whilst you’re out walking we also surface nearby curated Go Jauntly walking trails which you can enjoy to help boost your step count or your time connecting with nature and your surroundings.
So now all you have to do is walk to work, get off a stop earlier or just take a scenic detour to enjoy more time outdoors. Don’t forget that London is actually 47% green space so who knows what hidden gem you are likely to find? Not to mention all the walking time you’re gonna add to your life. Walking is a form of mindfulness too and it’s really good for you physically too.
We hope that you enjoy our station-to-station walking map in the Go Jauntly walking app. We’re in the process of making further enhancements to improve the way finding aspects. Let us know how you get on with it!
