In research for another project of mine, I discovered the TravelTime API, which allows sites/apps like THS to quickly calculate driving distances.
If done well, this would be an extremely helpful addition to THS. For example, I could set up a saved search for all listings within 3 hours’ drive from my home (or my current location, or a location I plan to be in the future). When viewing any listing, THS could tell me how far of a drive it is.
I have no affiliation with TravelTime, but I thought this would be worth a look for THS. There are other APIs out there with similar functionality.
@mahkato welcome back! I am tagging @Ben-ProductManager with this information to be added to our list of items to look into.
Wishing you luck!
I just use Google maps which gives me the driving time or public transport route and time
Yes, individual manual look-ups are fine, but my point is that THS could show you drive times for all listings automatically, or allow you to filter listings to how far you are willing to drive from your house or another location. You can sort-of do this by trying to get the map in the right place and then saving that search, but result quality depends on where you’re looking.
I can’t imagine this will be a priority, we’re still waiting for the review system to be improved.
Personally I find it part of the fun looking at how to get from one place to another
@Smiley you wont have to wait too much longer …
