MOBILITY HUB
URBAN MOBILITY
Urban mobility is defined as the movement of people or goods in urban areas, and it consists of all urban
transportation systems. Urban transportation is organized in three broad categories of collective,
individual and goods transportation.

It has become an important indicator to measure living quality in big urban centres.

REQUIREMENTS OF MOBILITY HUB

CONNECTIVITY

The Hub shall be connected to all major routes of the city. It should be highly visible and located near major
landmarks.

LAND USE

The hub location shall be compatible with the existing land use. The social/environmental impact on
the residential areas should be minimum. The presence of hub at a place should have positive
effects on the existing commercial activities.
SPACE REQUIREMENTS

The hub should have sufficient space for parking, entry, exit and circulation of all the modes of
vehicles. It should be capable of accommodating the travellers from all the modes in terms of
waiting areas, moving space and other public spaces.

COST

The hub should be financially feasible with low operational costs, development costs and
maintenance costs.

INTEGRATION BY SHUTTLE SERVICES

The possibility of converging of all existing modes at one hub is not always possible in the case of
Indian cities. In such cases where physical integration between modes is not possible, integration
can be done by operating shuttle services to those terminals.
