In a world with increasing pressure on urban space and climate, there is a clear need for new and effective mobility solutions such as shared mobility. Adoption rates of shared mobility are rising, but not enough to change the way people move around in cities. Therefore, the reduction in the pressure over the transport network and public space is still limited. Findings show that these new means of transport are not being unlocked in the right manner for mode transfer. Novel mobility hubs in the outskirts of the city, neighbourhoods or city centers could be a robust solution for this challenge while providing other interesting side services.
This project aims to develop and validate effective and economically viable mobility hub solutions by doing pilots in 6 cities (Amsterdam, Helmond, Eindhoven, Barcelona, Lisbon and Setúbal) and provide answers to three important questions: where, how and what size should the hubs be? Which business models are the best to make the hubs scale? And which procurement methods are the most suited?
