Mobihubs: supporting multimodal mobility 2018-11-12T15:55:49+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.

Just a year after the launch of the mobipunt (mobihub) concept in Flanders and following the recent launch of the concept in the Netherlands, interested parties in these regions are getting serious about planning mobihubs in their communities.

First mobihubs in Brasschaat 2018-11-12T15:36:45+00:00

After the cities of Deinze, Vilvoorde and Schoten, Brasschaat implemented their first mobipunt in October this year. The mobipunt “Oud Gemeentehuis” combines electric carsharing, bikesharing, qualitative bike parking and frequent public transport.

The implementation of their first mobipunt is part of the strategy towards clean air, address congestion by reducing private car ownership and creatie livable neighborhoods. Brasschaat has the ambition to install a mobipunt in every of the 9 quarters with also place for E-taxi’s and sharelocks.

Hello-Bike in Amsterdam 2018-11-12T15:37:31+00:00
Today there exist a large number of undefined mobihubs in Europa. We want to reach more visibility by giving a name to the concept. The Hello-Bike example in Amsterdam shews the importance of physical mobihubs in the street. These pillars provide information about one or more shared mobility systems. Hello-Bike places information pillars next to their drop zones. The result were striking: an increased use of 128% for business users and 140% for pay-as-you-go clients. This example indicates hat physical mobihubs with information pillars (will) play an important rol in the local uptake of shared mobility.
