CDTA is installing two demonstration mobility hubs in the Capital Region, sponsored by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The first round of hubs are located at the University of Albany Downtown Campus and Downtown Cohoes.
Mobility hubs integrate different modes of transportation to reduce dependence of single occupancy vehicles. Reducing car usage leads to lower greenhouse gas emissions, safer streets that are more amenable to cyclists and pedestrians, and empowering citizens to live in a world where they do not have to buy or maintain their own vehicle, a huge financial burden.
CDTA, with the help of CALSTART, Arup, NYU, Tri-State Transportation Campaign, and the Transit App have designed, installed, and operated these two demonstration mobility hubs for New York State. These hubs connect BRT, CDPHP Cycle! bike-share, and DRIVE electric vehicle car sharing, effectively connecting three networks of different modes of transportation.
