Mobility Hubs

Mobility Hubs are places of connectivity where different travel options – walking, biking, transit, and shared mobility – come together. They provide an integrated suite of mobility services, amenities, and supporting technologies to better connect high-frequency transit to an individual's origin of destination. A mobility hub can span one, two, or few miles to provide on-demand travel choice for short trips around a community.

What is a Mobility Hub? (Español)
The 2021 Regional Plan could include a network of “right-sized” Mobility Hubs near major residential, job, and activity centers. The proposed network includes our region’s urban core and 30 Mobility Hubs that were identified based on land use and employment characteristics, travel patterns, and demographics. Each Mobility Hub would make it easy to connect to and from Transit Leap services by offering on-demand Flexible Fleet choices.

Mobility Hubs also integrate with Complete Corridors to ensure walking and biking are safe experiences while prioritizing pooled ride options over single-occupant vehicles. By 2050, it is anticipated that the Mobility Hub network could serve approximately half of the region’s population and more than two-thirds of the region’s jobs. Additionally, approximately 60% of low-income households, half of all seniors, and more than half of all minority residents would have access to Mobility Hub services and amenities.

Sample mobility hub services and supporting amenities include: bikeshare, carshare, neighborhood electric vehicles, convenient micromobility parking and e-charging, dynamic parking management strategies, real-time traveler information, on-demand ridesharing, microtransit services, safer bikeways and walkways, and a variety of urban design features. Integrating information technology helps people find, book, and pay for transit and all other shared mobility options. In the future, automated and connected vehicle technology can enhance travel for people of all ages and abilities while fostering a safer environment for all mobility hub users.
