The Downtown Fort Lauderdale Mobility Hub is the first Hub that the Broward MPO has programmed for infrastructure improvements. This Mobility Hub is centrally located in an area that is actively redeveloping because of its close proximity to the downtown business district and government centers. On September 13, 2019, the City of Fort Lauderdale hosted the groundbreaking celebration that kickstarted the project.
The purpose of the Downtown Mobility Hub is to build upon the proposed transportation projects by creating infrastructure that is supportive of mixed-use development and emphasizes a pedestrian orientation while being consistent with the City of Fort Lauderdale’s vision for the Downtown area.
The Downtown Mobility Hub will be a multi-block area that will connect various transportation choices including:
- Brightline inter-city passenger rail between Downtown Miami and Orlando
- Future commuter rail service
- Regional express bus service
- Local bus service to points throughout Broward County
- Shuttle bus connections to Tri-Rail stations
- Other community shuttle bus connections
