Mobility Hubs

Mobility hubs are places of connectivity where different modes of travel – walking, biking, transit, and shared mobility – converge and where there is a concentration of employment, housing, shopping, and/or recreation. They provide an integrated suite of mobility services, amenities, and technologies to bridge the distance between high-frequency transit and an individual’s origin or destination.

Sample mobility hub services, amenities, and technologies include: bikeshare, carshare, neighborhood electric vehicles, bike parking, dynamic parking management strategies, real-time traveler information, real-time ridesharing, microtransit services, bike and pedestrian improvements, wayfinding, and urban design enhancements. These features help travelers connect to regional transit services and make short trips within the neighborhood and beyond. Integration of information technology helps travelers find, access, and pay for transit and on-demand shared mobility services. In the future, automated and connected transportation services may enhance mobility for travelers of all ages and abilities while fostering a safer environment for all mobility hub users.

Mobility hubs may result in a number of benefits including increased travel choices for residents, employees, and visitors; decreased dependence on the private automobile; and reduced traffic congestion. Two planning efforts are underway to apply the mobility hub concept within our region:
