Mid-Coast Mobility Hub Strategy

The Mid-Coast Trolley will offer a one-seat (no transfer) ride from the international border to the University 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 late 2021. Learn more at KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/MidCoast

Mobility hubs are places where transit and other shared mobility services, amenities, and supporting technology converge to offer a seamless travel experience. The Mid-Coast Mobility Hub Strategy will recommend mobility hub features for each station area including: improved walkways and bikeways, bike/scootershare services and designated parking, on-demand rideshare and microtransit services, and supporting services and technologies such as package delivery stations, mobile retail, real-time travel information, and interactive multimodal wayfinding. The strategy will also outline steps needed to implement recommended mobility hub improvements in the Mid-Coast Corridor.

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.

The Pepper Canyon Mobility Hub Designathon

SANDAG collaborated with UC San Diego to host the Pepper Canyon Mobility Hub Designathon on April 6-7. More than 200 students, professionals, and community members participated in the two-day event where teams of students, community members, and professionals developed visionary concepts, designs, and proposals for future services and amenities to incorporate at and near the Pepper Canyon Trolley Station to maximize personal mobility.
