    REPORTER AMANDA DUGAN EXPLORES
    THE FUTURE MOBILITY HUB.AMANDA
    DUGAN: WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE
    AREA UNDERNEATH BEN WHITE
    BOULEVARD BETWEEN MANCHACA
    ROAD AND PACK SADDLE PASS.
    DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM TARGET.
    THIS WILL BE TRANSFORMED INTO
    THE FUTURE WESTGATE TRANSIT
    CENTER.CAPMETRO AND TXDOT HAVE
    BEEN COLLABORATING ON THE
    PROJECT FOR THE PAST TEN
    YEARS. THE MOBILITY HUB WILL
    BRING A VARIETY OF TRANSIT
    OPTIONS TO ONE SPOT--INCLUDING
    ALLOWING DRIVERS TO PARK THEIR
    CAR AND JUMP ON THE BUS.
    "IMPROVING ACCESS FOR THOSE
    THAT WALK, ACCESS FOR THOSE
    THAT BIKE, ALLOWING CAR SHARE
    MOBILITY, BIKE SHARE AND--OF
    COURSE-- THE CONFLUENCE OF
    TRANSIT.""ANOTHER HOPE FOR THE
    MOBILITY HUB IS THAT IT WOULD
    ENTICE RESIDENTS TO CONSIDER
    PUBLIC TRANSIT, LIKE THE
    METRORAPID, INTO DOWNTOWN
    INSTEAD OF DRIVING EVERYDAY."
    AMANDA DUGAN: THE MOBILITY HUB
    WOULD OFFER AROUND 200 PARKING
    SPACES. PLUS PROVIDE A BUS
    DRIVER ONLY RESTROOM TO ASSIST
    DRIVERS IN STAYING ON SCHEDULE.
    CURRENTLY THE AREA IS A
    POPULAR SPOT FOR PEOPLE WHO
    ARE HOMELESS TO SET UP
    SHELTER. PASTOR MARK HILBELINK
    OF SUNRISE COMMUNITY CHURCH
    THINKS THE MOBILITY HUB MIGHT
    DISPLACE SOME OF THEM, BUT
    WILL BE BENEFICAL OVERALL FOR
    THE HOMELESS. "SOME OF OUR
    CHURCHES THAT WE WORK WITH ARE
    HELPING HOMELESS PEOPLE ARE NO
    LONGER GOING TO BE ON BUS
    ROUTES, WHEN THE BUS ROUTES
    SHIFT. IT MIGHT CREATE MORE OF
    A HUB FOR PEOPLE COMING THRU
    IN THIS AREA FOR SERVICES. "
    CONSTRUCTION IS EXPECTED TO BE
    COMPLETE IN SPRING 2019.
