Transit hubs are developing in cities throughout the world – some as simple as a “bus transfer place” with overhead roofs and bus lanes. A successful transit center not only makes transfers between routes or modes easier but may increase ridership, improving access to a location while reducing demand for parking spaces.
Goals and Objectives
A transit hub centralizes services and makes transfers between modes and routes easier and creates a gravity of activity at a specific place. It also could provide shelter, heat, and WiFi, making the transit experience more comfortable and productive.
Mobile apps, GPS, and WiFi
Use Case Summary
Transit hubs are multimodal centers for passengers across different transport services (bus, long-distance bus, rail, taxi, car share, bicycle, etc.) and integrate real-time information such as arrival time and amenities such as restrooms, food, WiFi, and shelter. Fare media and payment systems could also be included.
