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. Furthermore, as part of our SMP programme, we encourage municipalities to develop hubs.

Parking facilities at mobility hubs enable people to switch transport mode to continue their journey by public transport.
Our proximity to alternative mobility options has increased slightly in 2021. This is mainly due to improved data registration in our back-office systems. We now have 209 owned and long-leased Park+Ride (P+R) parking facilities (2020: 204) registered at or near major transport hubs.

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.
In 2021, we have continued to add bicycle parking to our car parks. We now have 119 owned and long-leased parking facilities offering bicycle parking (2020: 104), a 14% increase.
