Map Tool to Create an Area based on Commute Times
December 4, 2013 6:21 PM Subscribe
Are there any online mapping tools that given a starting address and a starting time and a maximum time spent commuting will draw a border enclosing the area you could drive to in typical traffic at that time? The idea is if I want to live within 45 minutes of work I would give it my work address, the time I normally leave work to go home at night, and the maximum time I'm willing to spend on my typical commute and it would draw a boarder the encloses the area in which I'd be looking to find a home, knowing any other neighborhood/address would be outside my maximum commute time.

There was a similar question here
, but most of the links are dead now.
I also found this Trulia map
, but the commute times seem way off to me for Los Angeles, so I don't think it's taking typical traffic into account.
