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. The Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will manage the project in coordination with the City of Bend, CET and other partner agencies and organizations. 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 Bend Mobility Hub Feasibility Study Draft Public Engagement Plan

Mobility Hub Feasibility Study 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.
