Poland’s “first Mobility Hub” to open in Warsaw business district
Posted: 20 August 2020 | Sam Mehmet (Intelligent Transport)
Located near Warsaw Chopin Airport, the hub will include dedicated parking and charging infrastructure for micromobility devices.
In Poland’s largest business district – Służewiec in Warsaw, the country’s first “Mobility Hub” is set to launch. The hub will be a parking space for shared, 100 per cent emission-free electric scooters, mopeds and bikes, alongside dedicated charging infrastructure. The project is being carried out by Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) firm Vooom and real estate company Adgar Poland.
The hub aims to allow users to find their preferred means of transport quickly and easily, whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines and promoting the use of micromobility as a sustainable, safe way to travel.
“Mobility Hubs will be a revolution in the approach to city travel. First, they will give employees, customers and tenants access to efficient and convenient shared mobility. Secondly, under one contract and in one attractively arranged space, they will guarantee the availability of sharing vehicles, thus complementing traditional transport options,” Vooom wrote in a statement.
“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.
“From the beginning of Adgar Poland’s presence in Służewiec, we attach great importance to the continuous development and changes for the better of this district, meeting the needs of both tenants of our buildings and local residents. By focusing on the comfort of work and life, we create the necessary infrastructure also within our facilities. Mobility Hubs perfectly fit into this strategy and will definitely help in meeting the growing business requirements of Mokotów. In addition, this initiative will allow us to contribute to the organisation of public space, for the benefit of everyone, including the environment,” said Artur Filipiuk, Operating Director of Adgar Poland.
