The City of Thornton, Colorado is in the early stage of planning for shared micromobility and car share to shift some of the trips away from of single occupancy vehicles for commuting and non-work. The objective of this project sought to identify locations and typologies for neighborhood micromobility hubs that can serve as points of interconnection between these new modes and existing transit. Hub typologies were also identified with smaller to larger hubs in parks, bus stops, and larger stations for Park & Ride and N-Line Commuter rail providing access to these shared services, including cargobike share, and secure parking for personal devices.
