Regional Mobility Hub Strategy

As part of the fulfillment of San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan, SANDAG has developed a Regional Mobility Hub Strategy to demonstrate how transportation services, amenities, and supporting technologies can work together to make it easier for communities to access transit and other shared mobility choices.

The Mobility Hub Features Catalog is a resource for regional agencies, local jurisdictions, transit operators, and private service providers as they collaborate to implement mobility hubs around the region. It describes the kinds of services, amenities, and technologies that make up a mobility hub like enhanced transit waiting areas featuring WiFi and real-time travel information; safe walkways and bikeways; secure bike parking; mobile retail services; dedicated bus lanes and smart intersection improvements; shared cars, scooters, and bikes; smart parking technology; and more.

Eight prototype sites within the San Diego region were identified to show how mobility hub features should be tailored to different communities. Each profile sheet is interactive – click on any mobility hub feature icon to learn more about the service or amenity within the Mobility Hub Features Catalog. 

The Implementation Considerations memo recommends strategies to facilitate mobility hubs including planning and policies, allocating space for hub features, data sharing, and public-private partnerships.

An Equity Considerations memo summarizes some benefits, challenges, and best practices associated with the equitable implementation of mobility hubs so that everyone benefits.

Project Funding
The project was partially funded by a Caltrans Emerging Priorities Program grant and was led by SANDAG in conjunction with the Imperial County Transportation Commission. Three mobility hub prototype sites were identified in Imperial County.

Next Steps
Staff will develop a 3-D visual simulation of the mobility hub concept for the Oceanside Transit Center prototype site. Analysis will also be carried out to identify a regionwide mobility hub network.
