Mo.Hub – Cooperative mobility stations in the neighbourhood

The project Mo.Hub will create more than sustainable mobility alternatives for neighbourhoods: Together with residents, mobility “oases” will be created in public space that create a high-quality atmosphere and encourage people to take public space.

Mobility Hubs offer a bundled service of shared modes of transport. From electric cars to e-scooters to cargo bikes - demand-oriented means of transport for all journeys. As part of the Mo.Hub project, these hubs in public spaces will be developed together with residents.

 

The focus of this project lies not only on the creation of urban-friendly, ecologically and economically sustainable transport, but also on the use and temporary conversion of public space. In existing neighbourhoods and in newly built urban districts, the so-called mobility “oases" should trigger a change in the use of public space and create socially differentiated mobility spaces.

One goal is to reduce space for car parking in order to gain space for flexible uses in public space. Furthermore, the accessibility of urban residential neighbourhoods should be increased, thereby contributing to the reduction of mobility poverty.

 

Mo.Hub brings several pilot projects to different districts of Vienna. Those projects are accompanied by experienced project partners in terms of scientific and social organisation over the course of the project.

Mo.Hub should not only become a permanent feature in the cityscape, but also in the repertoire of decision-makers in politics and administration. The aim is to build confidence on a local level and to initiate networking between private, private-sector and public actors. In the tension between top-down and bottom-up, the involvement of intermediary organisations is essential. In order to build up knowledge and further develop the approach, knowledge about the effects of Mo.Hubs as well as know-how in process design is necessary. Therefore existing local structures and processes will be taken into account.

 

The project partners di_mann and Stadtland are crucial for the success of the project and the co-creative design of the Mo.Hubs are. Both of them can draw on experience in accompanying social processes, e.g. within the framework of Local Agenda 21.
