Test distance eligibility with QPaths

Fast, accurate, safe, QPaths is a new tool from QRoutes that enables planning teams to quickly assess home to school transport requests based on distance eligibility. 

Case study: North Tyneside Council improves efficiency of processing school transport applications

  • Fast – the tool processes hundreds of requests in minutes, saving planning teams hours of work.
  • Accurate – using Ordnance Survey’s Paths Network, QPaths has access to the UK’s most comprehensive walking network, finding routes other tools miss.
  • Safe – QPaths enables planners to define sections ‘unsafe’ sections of the network to be excluded from results, so QPaths only returns ‘safe’ distances.

NEW now includes catchment polygons and find closest school.
