CERN’s new Mobility Centre, on the car park next to the Globe of Science and Innovation was officially opened on Tuesday, 22 March. The centre brings together all of CERN’s transport options in a single location. "Our aim is to create an intermodal hub where CERN users and personnel can switch from one mode of transport to another, and from CERN transport to public transport," explains Lluis Miralles, head of the Site Management and Buildings (SMB) department.
The Mobility Centre incorporates the CERN bike and car rental services, the self-service car- and bike-sharing schemes, and SIXT car rental facilities (for long-distance journeys). It is located right next to the tram stop and the CERN shuttle bus stop.
"We have diversified our transport offer in the past few years in order to facilitate the journeys of users and personnel, and these services are going from strength to strength," adds Miralles.
Another piece of good news on the mobility front: the cycle path along the Route de l’Europe, connecting CERN's Meyrin and Prévessin sites, is under construction and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
