Mobility Hubs and Urban Interchanges

7 > 9 Nov. 2023
Paris, France
Organiser Logo


A mobility hub provides a focal point in the transport network that seamlessly integrates different modes of transport, multi-modal supportive infrastructure, and placemaking strategies to create activity centres that maximise access to mobility options and other resources as well as first/last mile connectivity. It increases the inherent value of every single transport mode connected to the hub. As a result, sustainable transport services are viewed as attractive options, as an alternative to private car use.

A mobility hub is much more than providing mobility as it can also provide all sorts of facilities such as local doctors, security lockers etc. This is even more relevant for rural areas where longer travelling times and scattered destinations require private cars to access everything for daily life.

In this context, hubs built around communities’ needs can become destinations themselves and reduce challenges to transport services, as well as make it easier for those that need to access public transport and other mobility services. It is not the modalities, but the range and accessibility of facilities that determines the success of a hub. The more activities in a hub the better because it creates a sense of place.
