I have been doing GIS for a few years now but never Network Analyst so I thought I would give this a go. I've built a multimodal network.

Question I want to solve: Using street center lines (walking) and bus routes, how far are these parcel polygons from the end destination? I want to know which parcels are well connected to the destination and which parcels are not well connected.

This analysis doesn't use walking/bus speeds/wait times, I want to keep it as simple as possible to start.

In my multimodal network, I have:

  • Street centerlines
  • Bus routes
  • Bus stops (transfer points between street and bus route)
  • Parcel centroids (start point)
  • Separate point feature class for destination I was thinking, is this a Closest Facility question? I would run the tool to start at my destination then find the closest facilities (the parcels)?

Another idea I had was Make Location Allocation Analysis Layer but I'm not sure about that.

I have run both of these tools but the output layers were blank. I'm not sure what I am doing incorrectly, I thought at least something would show up.
