The MOBI-MIX project has developed an insight report on mobility hubs the third of the four reports that will be developed throughout the course of the project.
In the last decades, mobility policies and transportation services have been evolving rapidly, mainly in large and medium-size cities. By now, most public authorities have placed sustainable mobility objectives at the core of their policies. In this context, we can notice many changes in the urban environment, infrastructure, amenities, and services. In addition to the reinforcement and continuous improvement of public transport, cities also encourage, among other practices, the use of active modes. In the same way, mobility that moves away from (private) vehicle trips and ownership to shared vehicles is covering more and more cities. Public-Private Partnerships are also being set up to better engage the transition to more sustainable mobility. Within this framework, mobility hubs bring together different means of shared and public transport, offering alternatives to private vehicles.
Mobility hubs are perceived to be one of the several solutions or mix of solutions, that cities and regions could consider for more sustainable mobility, in order to overcome the “car is king model“. These urban facilities are likely to offer significant advantages over already existing solutions, such as encouraging the use of public transport, multimodality, walking, cycling, and shared mobility.
