The survey and Social Media Challenge will both close on Friday, October 14, 2022.
The I-710 North Mobility Hubs Working Group (consisting of SCAG, LA County Public Works, LADOT, Cal State LA, and other local partners) is developing the I-710 North Mobility Hubs Plan to improve mobility and quality of life in the heavily congested region surrounding the northern end of the 710 Freeway.
The I-710 North Mobility Hubs Plan seeks to identify future Mobility Hub locations that would offer more transportation options, public spaces, and environmentally-friendly features in the area bounded by Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles, the South Pasadena L (Gold) Line Station, the LA County Public Works (LACPW) headquarters in Alhambra, Cal State LA, and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Key project partners include:
- LA County Public Works (LACPW)
- City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT)
- Cal State LA
- City of Alhambra
- City of South Pasadena
- Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)

What is a Mobility Hub?
Mobility hubs are places where two or more travel options – walking, biking, transit, and shared mobility (such as Uber, Lyft, bikeshare, and shared scooters) – come together to make it easier and more convenient to get where you need to go.
Why is this important?
Mobility hubs provide people with transportation options that make it easier to get around without a personal car. This helps to reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT) – a key goal for the region that supports congestion relief, sustainability, and public wellbeing.
Mobility Hubs in Los Angeles
Mobility hubs can include major transportation hubs like Union Station, transit-connected sites like The Bloc in Downtown LA, or smaller bus stops with features like secure bicycle parking or bicycle share. All mobility hubs may include some placemaking elements like seating, shade, and landscaping that make the hubs feel like inviting community spaces. The sites exist at different sizes and scales and are responsive to the context and needs of surrounding neighborhoods.
Los Angeles classifies mobility hubs into two types – “primary” hubs which exist at rail stations and serve as the backbone of the multimodal mobility network, and “satellite” hubs which are typically curbside and supplement the larger hubs. The City of Los Angeles also differentiates between Neighborhood, Central, and Regional mobility hubs.
Elements of Mobility Hubs
Mobility hubs can include a range of different services and amenities depending on their size and scale. These elements can be mixed and matched to create mobility hubs that are customized and best suited for every location. Some of these elements include:
Create mobility hubs that are attractive, accessible, and connected within the area surrounding the northern end of the 710 Freeway to provide residents, commuters, and employees with sustainable, affordable, and future-ready transportation options.
Accessibility: Identify mobility hub locations that connect to the greater multimodal transportation network and are accessible to people using all modes.
Mode Shift: Develop solutions that encourage residents, commuters, and employees to use sustainable and flexible modes of transportation, reducing vehicle miles traveled (VMT).
Equity: Center the concerns and experiences of historically underserved communities within the planning process and co-create solutions that improve real, everyday transportation challenges.
Collaboration: Collaborate with community members and agency partners to ensure proposed improvements are supported by all stakeholders.
Feasibility: Develop solutions that are cost-effective and feasible to implement.
How Do I Get Involved?
As part of the plan development process, the I-710 North Mobility Hubs Working Group wants to hear from you! There are numerous ways you can get involved:
*Workshops may be held virtually or in-person depending on public health protocols. In-person events will follow all public health guidelines.
This website will function as the central location for project information, including meeting information, public input opportunities, surveys, and plan documents.
