Transit is morphing towards intermodal linked trips, where frequent fixed route (Bus & Rail) connects intense land uses. Suburban residential and office/industrial parks will be connected to transit hubs with less-frequent transit/shuttle routes and demand-responsive services booked using apps and call centers. Transit hubs are designed for easy, safe and quick transfers between fixed route transit, the demand response services described above, bikeshare, bike-racks, and micro mobility. Best practices in design need to be highlighted and emulated. They may include marked pavement areas to park shared bikes, scooters, and whatever comes next. Pathways need to be marked as well.
