Travel Reach & Destination Opportunities

A Data-Driven Approach to Planning and Equity

People travel to reach their desired destinations, such as work, grocery stores, school, medical centers, or a park. These places create economic, social, and recreational interactions. They are also critical for healthy and vibrant communities. Transportation—whether walking, biking, riding transit, driving, or sharing a ride—makes access to these essential opportunities possible.

Kimley-Horn’s Access2Opportunity gives agencies new insights on how their transportation systems help create healthy and vibrant communities.

Measure Your Area’s Accessibility

Accessibility describes how effectively a transportation system connects people with the rest of society. Kimley-Horn created Access2Opportunity to measure two metrics: 

  1. Travel Reach: How far can you travel in a reasonable amount of time using the transportation system? A larger travel reach typically results in connections with more opportunity.
  2. Destination Opportunity: How many key opportunities (e.g., number of jobs, grocery stores, etc.) are accessible within someone’s reasonable travel reach? A larger number of destination opportunities is a strong indicator of a healthy and vibrant community – and an equitable transportation network.

Inform Equity and Scenario Planning

Use Access2Opportunity to answer critically important questions.


  • Calculate Travel Reach and Destination Opportunity scores for any geography in a region (e.g., census block or parcel).
  • Compare how accessibility varies between traditionally underserved and underrepresented populations and the remainder of the community.

Scenario Planning:

  • Index Travel Reachand Destination Opportunity in ways that create a consistent method to compare combinations of policies, programs, and projects. 
  • Model new bike facilities, new transit routes and stops, new road openings and added lanes, and new pedestrian-only zones.
