Brussels Link City, a Multimodal Mobility Oriented Development Model
The LinkCity project aims to develop a network of multimodal transport hubs at the edge of Brussels 19 districts to interconnect and improve the use of different urban transport modes. The approach is taking advantage of the current subway network and the future development of RER and new metro lines. Originally made of metro stations and Park&Ride, these hubs need a holistic approach land value capture, urban densification and smarter public spaces aligned with micro-mobility options and shared used transport services, bus corridors and pedestrian green connections to guide users to a better modal choice according to their needs and lifestyles. Through a multimodal and interactive approach of urban mobility, the project aims to improve the use of public spaces and roads, increase the urban liveability and decrease the carbon footprint of the commuters, while it connects urban functions in a smart way for a healthier form of public space. The research is also associated with parking policies at the level of the metropolitan area in order to encourage a more responsible use of the car in Brussels with suitable alternatives for everyone.
