Park & Geaux
In 2019, Louisiana State University created a Mobility Implementation Plan as a part of the university long-term LSU Strategic Plan 2025. The Mobility Implementation Plan is a core recommendation of the Comprehensive and Strategic Campus Master Plan. This plan aims to improve travel to, from, and around campus for faculty, staff, students, and visitors in a safe and equitable manner.
One of the initiatives outlined by this strategic plan was the creation of a Park & Geaux Mobility Hub to assist in the mobility and transportation of students, faculty, and staff from the exterior commuter lots to the core of campus in a safe, convenient, and sustainable manner. This concept would also be complete with multiple mobility hub amenities including: restrooms, wifi, air conditioning, access to micro-transit programs, and much more.
