Mobihubs: supporting multimodal mobility2018-11-12T15:55:49+00:00

Joachim Landtmeters, student Master of Engineering: Logistics and Traffic at KU Leuven, wrote an interesting paper about creating a local network through shared mobility.

In his research, Joachim focuses on the implementation of shared mobility in cities and municipalities, more specifically via mobihubs. He analyzed the situation of the city of Leuven. The paper shows that there is potential for the implementation of mobihubs on a large scale. Moreover, he states that, despite the unique nature of each mobihub, the uniform recognisability of mobihubs in Flanders is of great importance. Read the full paper here.
