In order for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) to have a more coordinated, integrated transportation system, it will need to include a number of focal points – “mobility hubs” that will help connect the entire transportation network together. These mobility hubs are key components of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) now being developed by Metrolinx – a comprehensive strategy for a seamless transportation system in the urban area encompassing Hamilton, Toronto, Peel, Durham, Halton and York Regions.
To be truly effective, however, mobility hubs need to be much more than transportation facilities. While they must connect the various modes of transportation – public transit (buses and rail), cycling, walking, automobiles, etc. – they must also be centres of activity, encompassing entertainment, shopping, recreation, family services and other amenities.
This Green Paper, the second in a series released by Metrolinx as it develops the RTP, sets out the key issues around mobility hubs that need to be considered in order to determine where and what should be built.
