View Executive Summary

This report examines existing mobility hub models in Europe, Canada, and the U.S. in order to glean implementation strategies for Denver. It reviews forward-thinking local work on mobility hubs by CDOT, DRCOG, RTD, the City and County of Denver, and Transportation Solutions. Based on other U.S. peer typologies, local efforts, and station area contexts, it outlines a typology of mobility hubs for Denver. Ultimately, this study prioritizes 34 stations for mobility hub implementation based on daily ridership, density, and equity factors. It also classifies each station as a Neighborhood, Central, or Regional hub using Blueprint Denver Future Place Type, current land use, and density. The report identifies necessary and optional amenities at each hub type, visualizing each of the three hub types at example stations. Finally, it considers factors for phasing hub development, and incorporates first-hand lessons from experts involved in Denver’s mobility hub space.
