Mobility Hubs of the Future

What will future mobility stations look like? how do they integrate different modes of transport so that they actually facilitate combined, multimodal mobility? Together with Nacka and Linköping municipality, OKQ8 and architects from Arup, we develop modular concepts for urban mobility stations as well as associated business and organization models

To manage future mobility requirements, it will be crucial to enable seamless transitions from one means of transport to another, which requires digital, organizational and physical integration. While the first two are addressed by solutions such as Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), the physical integration of mobility hubs is represented. However, current mobility stations are often not sufficient for seamless travel because they are not sufficiently integrated with modes of transport and services and thus lack the attractiveness of the users. In addition, they must be adapted to future mobility solutions: electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, mobility services or a combination of these.

Against this background, the project investigated how a new generation of mobility stations in Sweden can be developed. In collaboration with OKQ8, Linköping Municipality and Nacka Municipality, and the architectural firm Arup, three local concepts for different types of mobility were developed and prepared for later demonstration or pilot projects. A literature study and mobile station typology served as a theoretical basis for the actual plans. The concepts were designed to:

  • contribute to more efficient use of transport infrastructure and public space
  • improve user attractiveness for both means of transport and longer stops
  • enable adaptation to future needs and technology
  • result in a sustainable design and construction with high energy and resource efficiency.

This was supported by developing effective organizational models and competitive business models.
