RPR Commercial includes a drive time search feature that works with the search map. After you conduct an All Properties, For Sale or For Lease search for properties, go to the Map View of the Search Results. Then choose the Drive Time button from the Map Tools above the map.
There are two options for initiating the drive time search:
- Enter a complete street address in the field that appears below the tool bar, then press the red Search button.
- Click a location on the map, which drops a pin to form the center of the drive time search. The pin can be moved after it is placed.

Once the search is executed, the results are displayed as follows:
The drive time search is helpful when a business owner needs to locate a business within a specific driving time from a certain spot, or if there’s a maximum amount of time that customers are willing to drive or walk to patronize a business.
Street network data and approximate driving times are provided by Esri, an RPR data partner, and updated annually. The driving and walk times are approximations.
