Regional Mobility Hub Implementation Strategy

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:

  • Oceanside Transit Center
  • Grossmont Transit Center
  • Vista Transit Center
  • Barrio Logan Transit Station
  • Sorrento Valley COASTER/Amtrak station
  • 8th Street Trolley Station (National City)
  • State Route-15 at University Avenue (City Heights)
  • Otay Ranch Town Center

An interactive 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.

Project Funding

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.
