Capital Region Mobility Hubs


Project Overview

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 has already constructed one mobility hub at Gateway Plaza Park in Schenectady. And are constructing two more mobility hubs starting in Spring 2024 - Liberty Square in Troy and Manning Boulevard in Albany.
And CDTA is also studying where else mobility hubs should be located. As part of a project sponsored by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), CDTA, with the help of CALSTART, Arup, NYU, Tri-State Transportation Campaign, and the Transit App, has designed, installed, and operated two demonstration mobility hubs for New York State (University of Albany Downtown Campus and Downtown Cohoes). These hubs connect BRT, CDPHP Cycle! bike-share, and DRIVE electric vehicle car sharing, effectively linking all three mobility options in one central location.




When the project is completed, the NYSERDA Final Report will be added to this page (expected summer 2024).
