A lot has happened during the last two years: what has changed and to what extent do the COVID-19 and the current economic and energy crises impact mobility demand and passenger travel habits and behaviours today? What are regional commonalities or differences? What could the consequences for the stations be – worldwide and in different parts of the world?
To complement existing studies and reports on various aspects of station development for the future, this new UITP and KONE study aims at taking a fresh look at societal, technological, and economical aspects that appear to be emerging and might influence the future of stations.
Developed in the framework of the Stations of the Future project, the study focuses on mobility hubs, that are multimodal stations and serve as entry points to public transport systems but also provide ancillary services and social activities.
This present report is a first step of the study. It summarises the observations identified in existing reports and publications and is based on initial discussions with UITP stakeholders from all around the world. These observations may show changes in the behaviour and needs of citizens and public transport users and will impact the role of the stations in the future as well as any available services and functions.
