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.
2020 Mobility Hubs
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.
