HELY RESEARCH: NEIGHBOURHOOD HUB MAKES UP TO 1.000 HOUSEHOLDS MORE SUSTAINABLE WITH SHARED ELECTRIC MOBILITY

Mobility hubs make households in large and small cities more sustainable with electric shared mobility. Shared transport mobility Hely sees an expansion of mobility hubs in residential complexes in metropolitan areas to new residential areas in smaller cities as well. Research into the usage shows that neighbourhood hubs have a service area of up to 1 kilometer and up to 1.000 households.

Shared transport provider Hely now operates more than 80 mobility hubs for residents of residential towers and apartment complexes in major cities and for employees of companies. The trend is that residential areas are also very suitable for sharing electric shared cars and (cargo) bicycles. A development that is taken into account when designing new neighbourhoods and areas. “With neighbourhood hubs we facilitate larger groups of people and can therefore make a more sustainable impact on the environment per project and improve the quality of life for residents,” says Michael Baan, responsible for Business Development at Hely.

Sustainable impact

With a mobility hub in a large city, Hely facilitates an average of around 350 homes. In a residential area, this quickly increases to more than 1.000 homes. In this way, more impact can be made at once with regard to sustainability and the scarce space. Hely mentions the Parkrijk district in Rijswijk as an example. A new neighbourhood that is classified as sustainable, inclusive, safe and child-friendly. When designing the district, people want to use space and energy in a smart way and have therefore opted to realise fewer car parking spaces for residents and to install several Hely Hubs. This encourages residents to use sustainable means of mobility such as electric shared cars, e-bikes and e-cargo bikes.

Customised transport

For each mobility hub, Hely adjusts the type and number of shared means of mobility to the users. The company knows the need from collected data, but also from the recent survey among current users of the mobility hubs. One of the most important results of this research is that the car is the most favored electric vehicle, but that a third of the users also use a shared bicycle. Other outcomes are:
