 LISTEN HERE OR WHEREVER YOU GET YOUR PODCASTS

The Travel Time Platform approaches location-based search form the perspective of the time it takes to reach a destination.

In this interview, Charlie Davies walks us thought the challenges of building a search engine based on travel time and what this might look like in the future.
