Transit Oriented Development (TOD), mobility hubs and Shared Autonomous Vehicles (SAVs)

Lindholmen Science Park, Gothenburg Sweden

The project aims to decarbonize transport and decrease oil dependence by offering innovative shared future mobility solutions that work with public transport and enrich the service with first/last mile alternatives.

The project will envision future mobility scenarios and explore implementations of mobility hubs with electric Shared Autonomous Vehicles (SAVs) in Swedish and American suburbs. This to catalyze the introduction of mobility hubs as infrastructure that will inspire gradual redevelopment and decarbonization of transport in Swedish and American suburbs.

It will emphasize mobility hubs as public spaces with multiple and flexible city functions that change throughout the day.

A mobility hub can turn into a market during the day and serve as a carpool in the night when the public transport service is not frequent.

The project will analyze scenarios and seamless intermodal transfers from public transport to shared mobility systems at mobility hubs including a critical study on inclusive mobility aspects and gender and children perspectives of implementing SAVs as future mobility systems.

The results of the project will be published as an urban design handbook that aims to inspire and help planning consultants and municipalities integrate flexible mobility hubs with SAVs and create high-quality public spaces with shared mobility systems at transit stations.

The combination of Swedish and American academies and Swedish consultants creates the opportunity to bring theory into practice and catalyze future mobility hub innovations that will contribute to more energy-efficient and carbon-responsible transports.

There will be bilateral visits to KTH and Stockholm University in Sweden and the University of Alabama and UC Berkeley in the USA with organizing workshops to meet local actors and stakeholders from Sweden and the USA. The Swedish-American visits and workshops will also link to the networking activities in the European-Chinese project on TOD2 within JPI Urban Europe financed Swedish Energy Agency (P2023-00026) that will create an international morphological research network on sustainable mobility together among KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, Aalborg University, Nanjing University and Tongji University.

Project manager: Todor Stojanovski, KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Parties: KTH Royal Institute of Technology, 4Dialog AB, Stockholm University, SWECO AB and University of Alabama

Period: 2023 to 2024
