Minneapolis launches mobility hub pilot program

Oct. 11, 2019

The city of Minneapolis recently launched a mobility hub pilot program to increase access to convenient transportation options in certain areas around the city.

The pilot will be implemented beginning in four locations in north Minneapolis, and will then continue with additional locations in the south and northeast areas of the city. Types of transportation that will be accessible in the mobility hubs includes transit, shared scooters, and bike-sharing.

According to the city's Public Works Department, the purpose of the three-month pilot program is to inform a long-term plan to implement a larger mobility hub network in Minneapolis. The city is collaborating with Metro Transit, Hennepin County, mobility service providers, and neighborhood organizations on the pilot.

Throughout the duration of the pilot program, ambassadors from the city and its partner organizations will be present at the mobility hubs at certain times in order to collect feedback and provide information about the various transportation options available.
