About the company

Kolumbus is Rogaland county's mobility- and public transport authority, owned by the county and have around 50 employees + 25 in the customer center.  In 2017 Kolumbus was given operational responsibility for mobility in the region,  through a political decision at the county council, and through Byvekstavtalen /  Bymiljøpakken. The overall goal is to contribute to the national  "Zero Growth Target" (Nullvekstmålet).  Kolumbus is expanding its offer to include city bicycle, self-driving bus, train, walk, car-sharing, and door to-  door transport.


The public sector both facilitates mobility (eg. through Byvekstavtalen/  Bymiljøpakken) and requires mobility (through zoning/regulation plans) when new real estate areas are planned and developed. Real estate developers must comply with these public mobility requirements, but they know that they also need to offer something else, something special to be considered as attractive for people buying apartments and companies renting offices. It’s no longer enough with only parking for cars. They also need to make mobility plans for each project.  Kolumbus is now an informal but proactive link in mobility between the public  and commercial developers and Kolumbus is in a number of dialogues, processes  and projects with municipalities, property owners & - developers and others,  regarding mobility in general and mobility hubs.


How can we make sure that these mobility hubs are designed and created in the the best way, with the eyes of modern, human, and sustainable city planning?  How should they be designed and look? What kind of services could and should they contain? Where should they be located, and why? Can we make a guideline for mobility hubs, and which principles should it be based on?
