As part of the fulfillment of San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan, SANDAG is developing a
Regional Mobility Hub Implementation Strategy. By locating multiple transportation services and
amenities in one location, mobility hubs will help people take advantage of transit and other
alternate transportation choices. Stations along Trolley, SPRINTER, COASTER, Rapid, and
high-volume bus routes are all candidates for mobility hub investment. The strategy will
identify areas where mobility hubs could be located and how they might be designed. Pilot
projects could then be implemented to test out and demonstrate how mobility hub concepts can be applied.
Staff has completed the first phase of public
outreach comprised of a web-based, interactive exercise that collected input on mobility
hub site selection criteria, services and amenities to include at these sites, and
potential locations for mobility hubs. As a result, concept plans will be prepared
for eight prototype sites in an effort to show how mobility hubs could be tailored based on community context.
The prototype sites are:
A catalog of mobility hub features, amenities, and implementation
considerations is also being prepared to describe the wide range of elements that can
contribute to a mobility hub, from transit improvements, to pedestrian and bicycle amenities,
to emerging technologies and motorized transportation amenities and services, including those
that are provided by private entities. The catalog will serve as a resource for member agencies,
transit operators, and private service providers as they work together to design and implement mobility hubs in their communities.
The project is being funded by an Emerging Priorities Program
grant from Caltrans, and is being led by SANDAG in conjunction with the
Imperial County Transportation Commission.
There are three prototype sites being designed in Imperial County.
