Mobility Hubs: Integrating Innovation in Transport for Life at Night

THE DAYTIME COMMUTER has multiple options to get from one place to another. Traditional modes of mobility like public transportation and auto are augmented with the introduction of bike and scooter sharing options to lessen time to walk or wait for a ride.

E-hail companies like Uber and Lyft are filling the "last mile" barriers for public transit, while also dominating personal travel in the evening and late-night when other options are either not available or not safe.

THE NIGHTTIME COMMUTER is often not considered in city or regional planning processes, leaving patrons and staff of nighttime social venues confronted with few, and often expensive choices.

Among the most common challenges is at closing time in busy nightlife districts. Taxis competing for passengers with pedicabs and E-hail companies can result in traffic congestion and conflicts, while party buses and parking lot after parties bring additional safety risks.

This session will present a case study of an integrated transport hub system to relieve pressure and create a friendlier closing time experience. An open forum will provide an opportunity for you to bring your own challenges and approach to mobility planning.
