When Facebook built the Menlo Gateway phase of its Menlo Park headquarters, the company knew getting employees around would be paramount. So the sprawling complex includes three parking structures, the first of which was designed to be a one-stop mobility hub that would give employees lots of choices for getting from point A to point B.
The mobility hub includes lots of traditional parking, but it also lets employees connect to the campus shuttle system, drop off or pick up bikes, lockers and showers, and features expanded pick-up and drop-off zones, and charging stations with valet service to keep vehicles moving into and out of charging spaces as their vehicles reach capacity.
