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.
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.
