In 2019, the City of Minneapolis launched a mobility hub pilot program to increase access to convenient, low or no carbon transportation options, including transit, shared scooters and Nice Ride bicycles.
The three-month pilot program was intended to introduce the concept of mobility hubs to the public and help inform a long-term approach to implementing a larger mobility hub network in Minneapolis. The City of Minneapolis collaborated with Metro Transit, Hennepin County, mobility service providers and neighborhood organizations on the pilot.
Mobility Hubs are called out as an action to formulate public-private partnerships to implement innovative, ambitious and scalable pilots within the Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan. See action 3.1 within the Technology topic of the plan.
Mobility Hub Pilot Survey - 2020
The City of Minneapolis wants your opinion on how you get around your neighborhood. This survey should take about 5 minutes. The survey gives the City information about the kinds of transportation improvements we will test in the mobility hub pilot this year.
The survey is available in English, Hmong, Somali and Spanish. Each language can be selected within the survey.

Mobility Hub Intersection Safety Improvements
As part of the City's Vision Zero initiative to eliminate all traffic deaths and severe injuries on city streets, intersection improvements will be made at three mobility hub locations as part of the 20 in 20 initiative:
- Lowry Ave N and Penn Ave N
- Central Ave NE and 26th Ave NE
- Lake St E and Chicago Ave (future mobility hub location)
Improvements at these intersections will be done with low-cost materials that can be installed quickly. Treatments will improve safety by increasing visibility at intersections, reducing the distance pedestrians are in the roadway, and reducing the speed of dangerous turns. Treatments will include bollard bump outs, hardened centerlines, among other measures as appropriate.
Mobility Hub 2020 Locations
Mobility Hub locations in 2020 have built upon the 2019 network, adding an additional 13 hubs to total 25 locations, including seven locations from 2019. Mobility Hubs are now located in 14 neighborhoods, throughout North, Northeast, South, downtown and the West Bank of Minneapolis.
Mobility Hub Partnerships
This year, we are partnering with five local organizations and organizers on engagement, neighborhood resilience at mobility hubs and to test a new model for the care of neighborhood-scale infrastructure via an Ambassador Program in North and South Minneapolis.
To support this work, the City of Minneapolis Mobility Hub pilot was selected as one of ten community-based projects through the Streets for Pandemic Response and Recovery program. More information about this grant can be found at the NACTO website.
