CDTA recently celebrated the successful completion of the Capital Region's first mobility hub in Schenectady, New York. In collaboration with key partners such as Schenectady County's Metroplex Development Authority, the City of Schenectady, and Schenectady County, CDTA has executed a groundbreaking project that transforms the local transportation landscape.
The mobility hub introduces a host of enhancements, including newly constructed sidewalks featuring innovative snowmelt pads and modernized shelters in the area adjacent to the green spaces of the park. Improvements on State Street include upgraded traffic signals and a queue jump lane. Gateway Plaza Park has undergone significant improvements, including new lighting, seating, and landscaping. The mobility hub is equipped with Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations, access to CDPHP Cycle! bike sharing, and DRIVE carshare. These additions provide multiple mobility options, contributing to the city's ongoing redevelopment and beautification objectives.
The Gateway Mobility Hub included adding or replacing transportation and public space infrastructure that will improve the conditions for current customers and the community. The enhancements could also attract new users of the various mobility options because the mobility hub establishes a seamless and efficient conduit for customers to navigate through the City of Schenectady and surrounding areas. The Gateway Mobility Hub aligns with CDTA’s broader mission to improve accessibility and mobility, reduce the Capital Region's carbon footprint, and promote environmentally-sound business practices to benefit the residents and businesses throughout our communities.
