The Makings of a Mobility Hub.

Mobility hubs are new mobility transit stops, integrating new forms of transportation with traditional public transit to make multimodal travel easy. Mobility hubs exist both in physical space and as digital ecosystems. Mobility hubs can be scaled to fit the needs of each distinct location. Los Angeles classifies mobility hubs into two types – station-based “Primary” hubs form the basis of the network and are supplemented by curbside “Satellite” hubs. Mobility Hub @Wilshire Grand is the first Primary hub location, and will be used as a blueprint for future locations.

Elements of Mobility Hubs

Interactive Kiosks

manage access-control and access to shared vehicles, as well as providing travel tools like route planning, real-time arrival info, and transit info.

Shared Use Mobility (SUM) Zones

designate curbside space for ridesharing, on-demand delivery, and package delivery vehicles. This increases safety for people getting out of vehicles while improving traffic flow.

Secure parking

for micromobility means fewer bikes and scooters on buses and trains. Micromobility comes in all shapes and sizes, so plan parking spots accordingly.

Shared electric vehicles

such as cargo e-bikes, scooters, or even carshare provide mobility options for those who do not drive.

Charging docks

for shared fleets provide universal access to scooters. Personal charging docks are equipped with a lock for greater security.

Staff support

provides outreach and education to help patrons learn about multimodal travel and how to apply it in their day-to-day commutes. Native tongues and residents are important staffing considerations.

Self-repair stations

for personal bicycles are more than a nice add-on; many people depending on a bike to get around have few resources to repair their vehicle.

Integrated Mobility Hubs.

This 3-year pilot program aims to help low-income residents connect with new mobility, ushering in a new multimodal vision for Los Angeles County.   13 Primary Hubs alongside Metro rail stations in Downtown LA, Hollywood, and Long Beach form the system’s backbone, with 85 satellite hubs within a 1-mile radius of each Primary Hub. Sponsored by LADOT, in partnership with LA Metro and the cities of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
