Mobility Hub Networks
Mobility Hub Networks - Designing Better Urban Transportation
As more and more people start moving to live in urban agglomerations, mobility in these 'mega-cities' is already becoming a major issue. Even worse, lack of sustainable mobility options is leading to environmental concerns, social inequity and energy shortages. The concept of 'hub networks' for mobility approaches this problem by taking a holistic view of urban transportation, i.e., considering all modes of transportation, local demographics, urban planning, as well as effects of technology as one large system. 'Hubs', in this context, are intersections of multiple mobility options, as well as other facilities, at a high-tech, single location. Though promising, this alternative still needs to be researched to find out what impact it might have, and what metrics might be a good way to measure them.
