MODe allows us to have a much better vision of what our cities can be, and how we can unlock the potential of transit-hubs to improve lives.

More than half of the world’s population now live in urban areas. By 2050, 70% of us will live in cities. Cities must provide healthy, vibrant and sustainable places to live, work and play, and more essentially options to move around safely.

Transit-hubs are no longer simply places where travelers arrive or depart, increasingly they are destinations in themselves. As a result they can positively impact the surrounding area both economically and socially.

Using a unique, new approach Arcadis has benchmarked the performance of a selection of the world’s leading transportation-related developments in our latest report.

Our findings show that New York’s Grand Central Station development ranks highest overall, scoring in the top five in all categories and topping the rankings for transit hub connectivity and economic development. All of this contributes to its high score and the result is that it is one of the most high performing transit hubs in the world.

The index originates from Arcadis and CallisonRTKL’s original approach to transit-related developments known as Mobility Oriented Developments (MODe).
