Mobility hubs keep cities moving

Mobility hubs are busy places where travellers arrive and depart by different modes of transport, such as bicycle, car, train, or plane. Mobility hubs help urban areas to be accessible and liveable, and enable people to switch transport mode to continue their journey by public transport.

Results

Our proximity to alternative mobility options has increased considerably in 2022. This is a combination of continuous improvement of proper registration in our back-office system as well as adding assets in our portfolio. We now have 286 owned and long-leased parking facilities (2021: 212) registered at or near major transport hubs.

Micromobility

By moving car parking from on-street to off-street, cities free up public space for pedestrians and cyclists. Many cities and towns now also wish to move bicycle parking off the streets too. We include bicycle parking in our renovation and new build plans wherever feasible.

There are clear advantages to both municipalities and cyclists in moving bicycle parking off-street, including:

  • public space becomes available for pedestrians, markets and other street activities;

  • dry and secure bicycle parking for cyclists with optional lockers for helmets;

  • e-charging facilities for e-bicycles.

Results

We now have 109 owned and long-leased parking facilities offering bicycle parking (2021: 55). The increase is a combination of continuous improvement of proper registration in our back-office system as well as adding assets to our portfolio.
