Warsaw to get country’s first mobility hub
As interest in shared transport grows, Poland is about to get its first “mobility hub”, which could help transform how people get around town.
The hub which will be built in the neighbourhood of Służewiec in Warsaw, is located close to Warsaw Chopin Airport and is one of the largest business districts in Poland, with thousands of people travelling to work there every day.
It will be built by Vooom, a platform offering “Mobility as a Service” (Maas) in Poland. After the first mobility hub in Służewiec, the idea is to build more of them at frequently-visited sites such as office buildings, shopping centres, stations and residential complexes.
This has several advantages: it increases people’s mobility, improves the use of space, and makes the properties more attractive.
“The potential of Mobility Hubs is hundreds of locations in key points in the largest Polish cities and the thousands of companies and institutions that will benefit from them,” said Vooom’s CEO Włodzimierz Łoziński.
The hub will have space for different types of shared transport, such as bikes, e-scooters and electric cars that can be rented by the minute (which are already available in Warsaw).
It will also include charging points for the ones that run on electricity.
This range of options will allow people to choose which one they want to use, based on their needs that day and where they want to get to.
