Why is the Mobility Hub Feasibility Study important?
Mobility hubs support CET’s plans to transition away from its current “hub and spoke” system and provide a more “multicentric” transit system in Bend. This study, funded by an ODOT Transportation Growth and Management Program (TGM) grant, will research best practices among peer agencies to inform CET’s efforts to successfully implement mobility hubs in Bend and across our region. The Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will manage the project in coordination with the City of Bend, CET and other partner agencies and organizations. A consultant team will conduct the feasibility study and the project is anticipated to kickoff on November 17, 2021 from 2:30 – 4 pm during the first Technical Advisory Committee virtual meeting.
