Mobility hubs are community anchors that enable travelers of all backgrounds and abilities to access multiple travel options — including shared scooters, bicycles and cars, and transit — as well as supportive amenities in a cohesive space.

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) coordinates, funds and provides technical assistance for mobility hubs to support first and last mile connections through access to multiple travel options.

MTC's Role

MTC aims to:

  • Identify mobility hub locations and planning considerations for different hub types
  • Establish design and implementation guidance
  • Position implementation partners for success

Mobility Hub Goal

The primary goal of mobility hubs is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) by reducing vehicle miles traveled (VMT).

Mobility Hubs Playbook

The Mobility Hubs Playbook is a comprehensive technical assistance guide with implementation strategies, tactical approaches and management techniques.

The playbook covers topics that range from implementation phasing and governance models to customer information and funding. The seven “plays” in this playbook represent steps, actions or strategies that can move your mobility hubs project from plan to installation to maintenance.

Where are Mobility Hubs?

Mobility hubs can be located where transit services already come together, or in communities and locations where transportation is needed the most. MTC has prioritized pilot investments for regionally significant mobility hubs.

Learn more about mobility hub location siting criteria, screening methodology and prioritization.

Call for Projects

The call for pilot program applications is now closed. 

MTC invited eligible Bay Area public agencies to submit project proposals to participate in the regional Mobility Hubs Pilot Program. The Pilot Program is intended to serve as a learning experience on the steps and actions that work best to advance and implement mobility hubs, as well as how to overcome implementation challenges.  The pilot is focused on projects within the priority locations detailed in Attachment A of the Application Guide.
