🆕Getting started

OS Multi-modal Routing Network (OS MRN) is designed for use in routing applications. There are many different routing software applications available.

This guide includes instructions to get you started with using OS MRN in two open-source routing applications:

  • GraphHopper (for Protocolbuffer Binary Format (PBF) format)

  • pgRouting (for GeoPackage (GPKG) format)

The ability to carry out multi-modal routing is dependent on the software you use. To make full use of the functionality of OS MRN, you may need to make configuration changes to your software, for example, configuring it to use the speed data or time conditional attributes. It is also possible to use 3rd party datasets such as bus and train timetables with the OS MRN to enhance multi-modal routing.
