Mid-Coast Mobility Hub Implementation Strategy

The Mid-Coast Trolley will offer a one-seat (no transfer) ride from the international border to the University City community. The new service will improve access to growing employment, education, and residential areas surrounding nine new light rail stations. This project is funded by TransNet and the federal government. Construction is currently underway, with service planned to begin in 2021. To learn more about Mid-Coast, visit www.KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/MidCoast.

In the Mid-Coast Corridor, mobility hubs will serve to enhance access and connections to the Mid-Coast Trolley, making it easier to use public transit and other travel alternatives. Mobility hubs offer an array of transportation services, amenities, and urban design enhancements that connect transit to where people live, work, and play. Various modes of travel, including walking, biking, ridesharing, shuttle, bus, and light rail services come together to create a seamless travel experience. Supporting technologies such as real-time arrival information, electric vehicle charging stations, and mobile applications also improve convenience for users.

The Mid-Coast Mobility Hub Implementation Strategy will identify services and amenities for each station which may include improved pedestrian and bike connections, secure bike storage, on-demand ridesharing services, wayfinding, and supporting technologies. The strategy will also outline steps needed to implement recommended mobility hub improvements at Mid-Coast Trolley stations. The project also includes opportunities for community input to guide development of mobility hub recommendations.

Public Outreach

Stakeholder outreach meetings were held in early 2017 within the Mid-Coast Corridor to collect input on which transportation services, amenities, and technologies could enhance access to Mid-Coast Trolley stations. An online, interactive survey was also administered to gather responses from the broader community and future station users. A Mid-Coast Mobility Hub Community and Stakeholder Outreach Memo was produced to summarize input gathered on corridor mobility needs and opportunities.

Project Funding

This project is being funded by a Federal Transit Administration grant that is focused on improving economic development and transit ridership, fostering multimodal connectivity, and encouraging private sector partnerships.
