Mobility hubs are infrastructure-based shared transport solutions connecting existing public transport modes to a population on the move. They are highly visible, safe, and accessible spaces where sustainable public, shared and active travel modes are brought together (along with community facilities where relevant) to reduce private car use. This redesign and reallocation of space away from the private car enhances the experience for travellers and creates a more pleasant environment for everyone.
The work undertaken in the new document ‘The design process – mobility hubs realised; Process, illustrations, and costings’ looks at five different types of mobility hubs, and addresses questions such as ‘what might a mobility hub look like?’, ‘what would it cost?’ and ‘what is in it?’. The document also describes the design and delivery process that can be used by built-environment professionals to further their understanding of what a mobility hub is, how it is designed, what it may cost and what elements make up a mobility hub.
CoMoUK is the national charity for shared transport, and has long been at the forefront of promoting mobility hubs as a sustainable, practical solution to shared transport in the UK.
