Historical travel time using Calculate a Distance Matrix

Dahlia 1 Reputation point

Can Calculate a Distance Matrix be used to get historical/past travel times by entering a past date as the startTime parameter?

The docs state the following description for the startTime parameter, which does not answer the above question:
Optional for Driving. Specifies the start or departure time of the matrix to calculate and /=uses predictive traffic data. This should be a date string in a format that can be parsed by DateTimeOffset.Parse. This option is only supported when the travel mode is set to driving.
Example: startTime=2017-06-15T8:00:00-07:00

    Hi @Dahlia ,

    Our underlying Routing API would use historical averages to do the calculation for routes in the past as well as the future. Only current trips will use live traffic.
