Mobility hubs are described as places that provide connections between different types of transportation options, including transit, micro-mobility, and on-demand services. Mobility hubs support CET’s plans to transition away from its current “hub and spoke” system. A Transportation Growth and Management Program (TGM) grant was awarded by ODOT to the Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to manage the project in coordination with the City of Bend, Cascades East Transit (CET) and other partner agencies and organizations.  A consultant team will conduct the feasibility study and the project will officially kickoff in October of 2021.

Project Objectives

  • Document best practices and lessons learned from peer agencies who have deployed new mobility tools and mobility hub concepts.
  • Develop evaluation framework for phasing a mobility hub program in Central Oregon.
  • Conduct market assessment to identify the current and future demand for services associated with a mobility hub.
  • Establish mobility hub types and features best suited to various factors and contexts (e.g. land uses, density, etc.).
  • Assess near- and long-term opportunities (e.g. location, funding, private development, etc.) for implementing mobility hubs.
  • Develop design guidance and an implementation strategy, including phasing opportunities.
  • Develop performance measures specific to a pilot project to inform design, implementation, and determining success of future mobility hubs.

Public Involvement

The project will utilize a Technical Advisory Committee and existing CET Regional Public Transportation Advisory Committee (RPTAC) meetings to receive input from community members regarding project deliverables and outcomes. Additional public involvement information can be found in the Draft Mobility Hub Feasibility Study Community Engagement Plan.
