The places where we will soon be switching between different mobility modes have the potential to become real neighbourhood hubs. With its research into 'community hubs', PosadMaxwan argues that accessibility and liveability go hand in hand. Logical links with the programme of a community hub are, for example, a bicycle workshop, a neighbourhood centre, restaurant or flexi workplace. For this study, GIS maps were used to calculate the spatial requirements and gains. Working intensively with the relevant officials, several pragmatic research questions were answered. For instance, where do the opportunities for hubs lie? What is the spatial impact on a neighbourhood? How does a network of hubs grow? And what do hubs look like? The research helps cities and municipalities to plan the development of a network of smaller and larger hubs of this kind.
