Mobility hubs are a place of connectivity with regional and local multimodal transportation options, offering integrated facilities, amenities, technologies, and services. By implementing these and enhancing the S-Line corridor it would help advance multimodal transportation for numerous communities – connecting rural communities to the urban core of the Triangle. 

The N.C. Department of Transportation has prioritized community planning, partnerships and funding support to ensure communities along the S-Line corridor are ready for mobility hubs   and passenger rail. After completing the Transit Oriented Development Study  that focused on preparing the communities for transit, in 2023, NCDOT and some communities began planning for mobility hubs. 

The Mobility Hub Plan will study how mobility hubs  can serve as places of connectivity for multiple transportation modes, including potential connections to high-performance passenger rail and transit. The Mobility Hub Plan builds on unique community-developed visions for growth and connectivity in each community along the corridor. 

It is critical to NCDOT that everyone is considered in transportation planning, focusing on first and last-mile connections—transit, microtransit, walkability and bicycle infrastructure—to support travel to and from each mobility hub. Additionally, NCDOT’s Rail and Integrated Mobility divisions work side-by-side to ensure that the rail infrastructure design and community infrastructure support this transformational opportunity. This model for community planning and design will be used in developing future passenger rail corridors in the state. 

The image below shows an example of components that can be included in each mobility hub.

Project Schedule

The Mobility Hub Plan kicked off in early 2024. Key deliverables include a feasibility study, environmental documentation (NEPA), Preliminary Engineering ​and community engagement.
