During the community fair in San Diego, Beep Inc., in partnership with Balfour Beatty, Kittelson, and TESIAC, presented its concept of implementing mobility hubs to create a network of autonomous electric shuttles designed as a neighborhood circulator. The alternative transportation network is intended to provide first- and last-mile connections to existing transit services. These mobility hubs will include strategically located electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and placemaking amenities to support the mobility networks. Additional electric charging investments, including microgrids, substations, and solar power, are proposed future concepts in these locations to support growth and enable the first demonstrated self-sustaining electric mobility hub.
Beep is regularly engaged with SANDAG as it works through next steps in it RFIC process.
