The “FLUX – Golden Transport Hub” mobility prize is awarded every year to a transport hub with impressive credentials from both the customer’s perspective and in operational terms. The prize highlights the significance of public transport with respect to sustainable mobility and the importance of transport hubs and a dependable transport chain between the various means of transport.
It was launched in 2007 by the Swiss Association of Public Transport (APT), PostBus and Swiss Association for Transport and Environment (ATE). Each year, the prize is awarded to the winner by an independent jury of experts on the basis of certain criteria. The jury is currently led by Ueli Stückelberger, the director of the APT. PostBus is responsible for organizing FLUX.
The jury assesses a range of transport hubs every year that guarantee a high level of comfort and safety to passengers. The sites need to offer good transfer options, exemplary infrastructures, lively and welcoming public spaces as well as innovative concepts and services.
The award honours the local municipality which is jointly responsible for the planning and design of the transport hub. The winning municipality receives a 3.66 kg bronze statue and 5,000 francs. The prize is awarded annually at the “MOVIMENTO – Forum for Mobility”.
